Abstract:

Naming of movement directions was found to be almost immune to interference from incongruent names integrated with the movement stimuli. This is in sharp contrast to the large delay of color naming when colors and incongruent color names are combined in the Stroop test. A hypothesis that faster processing of movement directions than of colors is the basis of the difference in interference was tested by beginning the processing of the words at various intervals prior to their movement. No appreciable increase in interference resulted from these stationary preexposures of the words. The absence of naming interference for movement direction and other dimensions suggests a basic difference between the cortical processing of color and other dimensions. Author
