Subjects view color names presented in various ink colors and are instructed to name the color of the ink. In incongruent stimuli, color names and ink colors are non-matching.

CONTRASTS

In the Cognitive Atlas, we define a contrast as any function over experimental conditions. The simplest contrast is the indicator value for a specific condition; more complex contrasts include linear or nonlinear functions of the indicator across different experimental conditions.

INDICATORS

An indicator is a specific quantitative or qualitative variable that is recorded for analysis. These may include behavioral variables (such as response time, accuracy, or other measures of performance) or physiological variables (including genetics, psychophysiology, or brain imaging data).

Definition contributed by MJohansen about six years ago:measures selective attention, cognitive flexibility and processing speed, and it is used as a tool in the evaluation of executive functions. [from Wikipedia] Subjects view color names presented in various ink colors and are instructed to name the color of the ink. In incongruent stimuli, color names and ink colors are non-matching. Also includes variations such as the Counting Stroop and Emotional Stroop.

REVISION 2

Definition contributed by BGregory about seven years ago:measures selective attention, cognitive flexibility and processing speed, and it is used as a tool in the evaluation of executive functions. There are different test variants commonly used in clinical settings, with differences between them in the number of subtasks, type and number of stimulus, times for the task, or scoring procedures.[14][15] Regarding the number of subtasks, all versions have at least two: there are written color names differing from the ink used and in the first trial the participant has to say the written word and the ink in the second.
