The Stroop test also correlates with age and education level (Van der Elst et al. 2006). When emotionally charged words are presented (Emo-Stroop), the Stroop task was found to correalte with high state anxiety.(Dresler et al 2009) You can find a review in "Secondary Influences on Neuropsychological Test Performance", edited by Peter Arnett. (Its on google ...

N.B.: There are many varieties of "Stroop-like" tasks, which as a class are often called implicit association tests or IATs. Since those are likely to test attributes related to their specific construction, I have excluded them from this answer. There have been a variety of papers studying correlations of Stroop performance with other characteristics. ...

Your question was a loooooong time ago, but I just ran across a couple of good references explaining what backward masking does and how to choose one. This(1) is a great paper examining the neural mechanisms and timing of visual backward masking; according to this (2) 2000 review of masking theory, there are four subtypes of backward masking. Backward ...

In order to find such studies, it's a good idea to start off with mapping out what kind of situations would be relevant - that is, in what cases would it even be possible to communicate with someone's unconsciousnes? Then you need to define what kind of communication you are interested in. Here are some ways to find some kind of unconscious communication: ...

No recall happens when reading the description is probably because one is focusing on reading and visualizing it but not recalling. I think there are different key features to prompt recall for different dreams, since dreams are a mixture of several features, and their proportion or intensities varies in different dreams (Foulkes and Vogel, 1965). E.g., in a ...

The absolute minimum duration of tone bursts is limited by mathematical (physical) limitations and more importantly, your hardware. Mathematically, the minimum duration will depend on the frequency, as one period is the minimum time necessary to mathematically define a particular frequency. For example, to complete one period of a 100 Hz tone, at least 10 ...

It really depends on what you mean by difference in pitch. Subjects can discriminate differences in frequency for very short tones, but it does not mean they are being perceived as pitch differences. The classic paper in this area is Moore (1973): As the duration is reduced from 200 ms to 6.25 ms, performance falls off, especially for low frequency tones. ...

I used 5 ms long tone bursts in an experiment where people had to discriminate between a 1000 Hz and a 1200 Hz pure tone (or rather, click). They could generally do this very well, if I remember correctly accuracy was above 90%. I then had a different paradigm which was a bit more difficult in terms of the task, and I had to increase the tones to 20 ms ...
