Proactive and reactive control depends on emotional valence: a Stroop study with emotional expressions and words

Published in: Cognition and Emotion, Volume 32, Issue 2, 325-340 Abstract “We examined proactive and reactive control effects in the context of task-relevant happy, sad, and angry facial expressions on a face-word Stroop task. Participants identified the emotion expressed by a face that contained a congruent or incongruent emotional word (happy/sad/angry). Proactive control effects were measured in terms of the reduction in Stroop interference (difference between incongruent and congruent trials) as a function of previous trial emotion and previous trial congruence. Reactive control effects were measured in terms of the reduction in Stroop interference as a function of current trial emotion… Read More

The automatic activation of emotion words measured using the emotional face-word Stroop task in late Chinese–English bilinguals

Published in: Cognition and Emotion, Volume 32, Issue 2, 315-324 Abstract “In the current study, late Chinese–English bilinguals performed a facial expression identification task with emotion words in the task-irrelevant dimension, in either their first language (L1) or second language (L2). The investigation examined the automatic access of the emotional content in words appearing in more than one language. Significant congruency effects were present for both L1 and L2 emotion word processing. Furthermore, the magnitude of emotional face-word Stroop effect in the L1 task was greater as compared to the L2 task, indicating that in L1 participants could access the emotional… Read More
