Cognitive Bias in Spider Fear and Control Children: Assessment of Emotional Interference by a Card Format and a Single-Trial Format of the Stroop Task.
Kindt, Merel; And Others
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v66 n2 p163-79 Aug 1997
Attempted to clarify whether fear is related to distorted cognitive processing of fear-related information. Administered card and single-trial formats of Stroop task to spider-fearing and control children. Found bias for spider words in both, regardless of format; further, processing biases assessed by the formats did not correlate, suggesting they measure different mechanisms or that one or both is unstable.
