  • The Stroop 's Stroop Experiment

    Introduction In 1935, John Ridley Stroop further researched and printed the whole idea of the Stroop effect which is also named after himself. The main purpose of the stroop experiment is to time how fast the participants are to respond to different coloured stimuli presented to them in different conditions. This measures the cognitive ability of the individuals involved as it tests the memory and focus. The work of John Ridley Stroop was originally a study that came from James McKeen Cattell (1991)

    To understand the concept of Stroop effect, learning the definition is the first step in learning. To define the meaning, it is “a test for this effect in which individuals are presented with lists of color words in matching and non-matching colors and the time they take to read the different words, or the number of errors they make, is recorded.” (Stroop effect | definition of Stroop effect by Medical dictionary). With Stroop effect, we try to recognize and identify such colors and numbers. In the

    Abstract The aim of this experiment is to study autonomic processes by replicating the previously carried out Stroop effect by using numbers. A number of 180 random participants aged in between 18-89 were recruited to participate in this experiment. Participants were presented with a stroop experiment task sheet which consists of three parts which was the control, congruent and incongruent conditions. Time was taken and recorded for each participant to say out the number of stars in the control condition

    Abstract The aim of this experiment was to test cognitive interference. The Stroop Effect is the finding that naming words is easier than stating the color of the word. The Stroop Effect was first conducted in 1935 by John Ridley Stroop which was published in the “Studies of interference in serial verbal reactions”. This experiment was replicated by asking 40 participants to complete two different tasks. Task one involved reading words printed in different colors. The second task was to read the

  • Stroop Effect On The Brain

    The aim of this experiment was to basically analyze how fast the brain can perceive color and describe words simultaneously with the Stroop Effect theory. The Stroop Test is also done to determine new findings on the human’s brain automaticity and how it processes certain functions. In reference, to the independent and dependent variables involved, the independent variable in this experiment would be the color word followed by the conflicting color and the dependent would be the time that it took

    The Stroop effect was tested on four different tasks. Nineteen Queens College students were recruited by flyer, and each were assigned to a word reading task, color reading task, color inhibition task, and word inhibition task. They were timed using a stopwatch function on a cell phone, to name the color, or word to the quickest of their ability. In the order from longest reaction time to shortest: inhibition color naming task, color naming task, inhibition word reading, and word reading. This study

  • The Stroop Effect Essay

    The Stroop effect is demonstrated by the reaction time to determine a color when the color is printed in a different color’s name. Participants respond slower or make more errors when the meaning of the word is incongruent with the color of the word. Despite knowing the meaning of the word, participants showed incapability of ignoring the stimulus attribute. This reflects a clear instance of semantic interference and an unfathomed failure of selective attention (Stroop, 1935). In the study of the

    Numerical Task Stroop Effect Experiment Annette Franco University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee   Abstract This study added to the well know innovation of the Stroop effect and experiment by John Ridley Stroop through a Stroop task experiment. There were twenty participants who completed two conditions, which tested reaction time. For each condition the participants were asked to read aloud the number of digits that appeared on each row as fast as they could. One condition number figure matched

    A Replication of the Stroop Effect Kimber-Ann Cook Broughton High School 3/26/08 Ms. Greene IB Psychology SL 1, 738 Abstract The Stroop (1935) effect is the inability to ignore a color word when the task is to report the ink color of that word (i.e., to say "green" to the word RED in green ink). The present study investigated whether object-based processing contributes to the Stroop effect. According to this view, observers are unable to ignore irrelevant features of an attended object (Kahneman

    participants to name them correctly. The experiment was a simple replication of Stroop (1935). The design was a repeated measure and the participants were chosen by convenience sampling as it was most favorable. The IV was which word list would be presented, the word list in black ink or the one in colored ink. The DV was the time in seconds that it took the participants read off the list of words. The results supported the Stroop effect. The mean time it took participants to name the words in the first
