  Moreover, inhibitory after‐effects were greater when both trials consisted of the same primary task properties. Strategic effects might explain part of the results, but there is evidence that a specific inhibition of either the stimulus, or the response to that stimulus, or both plays a role in the constitution of the after‐effects Cited by: Three inhibitory after-effects resulting from prime distractor response inhibition have been identified in location-based tasks. The first is the SNP effect itself. The required use of a prime distractor response on an ignored- repetition trial lengthens its reaction time, because it takes time to override its execution resistance (ER) feature. The inhibitory aftereffects associated with the suppression of responses activated by distractor-occupied locations were highly comparable for younger and older adults; including similar SNP. Ideally, execution resistance-induced error protection effectiveness, but not execution resistance override time (spatial negative priming), would remain unaltered with extensive practice executing prime-trial distractor response processing; however, both of these inhibitory after-effect characteristics exhibited a basic stability over time.

  Journals & Books; Help; (Fig. 10) appears to require different sets of inhibitory weighting for high and low spatial frequency mechanisms. When the central patch was 8 c/deg, inhibition decreased with the differ- ence in spatial frequency between center and surround, but also showed an overall increase as the spatial frequency of the.

In this study we examine the level at which inhibition of return (IOR) affects the processing of visual spatial stimuli. Experiment examined the effect of IOR on spatial Stroop interference. This results shows IOR could reverse the Stroop effects. If this were the case, the absence of inhibitory after-effects might be due to an inappropriate timing of successive presentations in previous auditory spatial negative priming tasks. Specifically, the distractor may not yet have been inhibited or inhibition may already have dissipated at the time performance is assessed.

performance, even after effects of age, verbal IQ, SES, and other spatial transformation abilities were accounted for. Thus, the present findings indicate that there is a specific and exclusive. Active working memory, inhibitory control, and the ability to generate and perform a sequence of responses are all putative cognitive abilities that may be responsible for the impaired performance that results from disruption of prefrontal processing.   The book identifies how excitory and inhibitory messages in the human nervous system combine and coordinate to affect attention, cognition, memory and language. Communication within the nervous system involves the excitation and inhibition of neurons. Inhibitory After-Effects in Spatial Processing: Experimental and When responding to a suddenly appearing stimulus, we are slower and/or less accurate when the stimulus occurs at the same location of a previous event, as compared to when it appears in a new location.
