An Asymmetric Stroop/Reverse-Stroop Interference Phenomenon in ADHD
Song, Yongning; Hakoda, Yuji
Journal of Attention Disorders, v15 n6 p499-505 Aug 2011
Objective: To examine whether participants with ADHD showed a deficit in Stroop/reverse-Stroop interference by comparing them to non-ADHD participants. Method: A group with ADHD, primarily inattentive type (n = 15), and a paired non-ADHD group (n = 15) completed the group version of the Stroop/reverse-Stroop test. Results: Asymmetric interference was observed between the Stroop test and the reverse-Stroop test in ADHD participants, presenting evidence contrary to Barkley's behavioral inhibition model of ADHD in which response inhibition deficits pertained only to the ADHD-C subtype. Conclusion: Participants with ADHD showed a control deficit in reverse-Stroop interference but not in Stroop interference. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
