Abstract

Our connectionist model provides a theoretical explanation for the existence of slow and fast emotional Stroop effects, and depicts them as independent but interacting phenomena. We build upon previous modelling work by Cohen et a] (1990) and Botvinick et al (2001) among others, and incorporate data that suggest a functional division of the Anterior Cingulate Cortex (ACC) into Cognitive and Affective Divisions. This work suggests that slow emotional Stroop effects are caused by activation of the affective portion of the ACC, which inhibits the Cognitive division, reducing top-down cognitive control on the subsequent trial.
