Summary of "The role of awareness in the cognitive control of single-prime negative priming."

Single-prime negative priming refers to a phenomenon whereby repeating a single prime as a probe target slows responses to that target. This phenomenon is modulated by cognitive control when the contingency between the prime and probe target is higher than chance. The present study investigated the role of prime awareness and awareness of the contingency within the control mechanism during single-prime negative priming. Results showed that while single-prime negative priming occurred regardless of participant awareness, the control mechanism was modulated by prime awareness and perceived contingency.

Cognitive control over unconscious cognition: flexibility and generalizability of task set influences on subsequent masked semantic priming.

Recent studies using an induction task paradigm indicated that unconscious automatic processes underlying masked semantic priming are susceptible to cognitive control influences. In this paradigm, par...

The relationship between conflict awareness and behavioral and oscillatory signatures of immediate and delayed cognitive control.

Cognitive control over conflict, mediated by the prefrontal cortex, is an important skill for successful decision-making. Although it has been shown that cognitive control may operate unconsciously, i...

The affective twitches of task switches: Task switch cues are evaluated as negative.

Task switching refers to the demanding cognitive control process that allows us to flexibly switch between different task contexts. It is a seminal observation that task switching comes with a perform...

Memory-guided selective attention: Single experiences with conflict have long-lasting effects on cognitive control.

Adjustments in cognitive control, as measured by congruency sequence effects, are thought to be influenced by both external stimuli and internal goals. However, this dichotomy has often overshadowed t...

Emotion-specific priming effects with marginally perceptible facial expression primes: Evidence from the "leave-one-out" paradigm.

Priming studies investigating the processing of emotional faces under conditions of limited awareness have shown that people can extract more than just valence from masked faces. However, previous res...

The Role of an Attention Demanding Activity for Priming Motor Learning

The purpose of this study is to determine if priming attention prior to practicing a motor task will have an effect on the ability to acquire and learn that motor task. The investigators h...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Vegetative state refers to the neurocognitive status of individuals with severe brain damage, in whom physiologic functions (sleep-wake cycles, autonomic control, and breathing) persist, but awareness (including all cognitive function and emotion) is abolished.

A single-stranded DNA-dependent RNA polymerase that functions to initiate, or prime, DNA synthesis by synthesizing oligoribonucleotide primers. EC 2.7.7.-.

A psychological state of awareness, the practices that promote this awareness, a mode of processing information and a character trait. As a therapy mindfulness is defined as a moment-to-moment awareness of one's experience without judgment and as a state and not a trait.

A set of cognitive functions that controls complex, goal-directed thought and behavior. Executive function involves multiple domains, such as CONCEPT FORMATION, goal management, cognitive flexibility, INHIBITION control, and WORKING MEMORY. Impaired executive function is seen in a range of disorders, e.g., SCHIZOPHRENIA; and ADHD.

Class I-restricted activation of CD8-POSITIVE LYMPHOCYTES resulting from ANTIGEN PRESENTATION of exogenous ANTIGENS (cross-presentation). This is in contrast to normal activation of these lymphocytes (direct-priming) which results from presentation of endogenous antigens.
