Emotional enhancement of error detection—The role of perceptual processing and inhibition monitoring in failed auditory stop trials

Published in: Cognitive, Affective, & Behavioral Neuroscience, Volume 18, Issue 1, 1-20 Abstract “The first aim of the present study was to test whether arousing, aversive sounds can influence inhibitory task performance and lead to increased error monitoring relative to a neutral task condition. The second aim was to examine whether the enhancement of error monitoring in an affective context (if present) could be predicted from stop-signal-related brain activity. Participants performed an emotional stop-signal task that required response inhibition to aversive and neutral auditory stimuli. The behavioral data revealed that unpleasant sounds facilitated inhibitory processing by decreasing the stop-signal reaction time… Read More
