Abstract. The emotional Stroop effect (ESE) is the result of longer naming latencies to ink colors of emotion words than to ink colors of neutral words. The difference shows that people are affected by the emotional content conveyed by the carrier words even though …

So far, however, the emotional Stroop task is the most frequently used experimental design to investigate attentional bias (Williams et al. 1996). To date, it remains unclear whether valence or arousal of emotional material determines interference (Schimmack 2005).

The emotional Stroop task (EST) has been one means of elucidating some of the core deficits in PTSD, but this literature has remained inconsistent. We conducted a meta-analysis of EST studies in PTSD populations in order to synthesize this body of research.

The emotional Stroop task is frequently used to assess the influence of attention on information processing. The emotional Stroop effect refers to findings that individuals are slower to name the color of ink a word is printed in when that word is negative compared to neutral (e.g., Algom, Chajut, & …
this emotional analog of the Stroop task could be a measure of psychopathology. Whether this task would prove useful as a clinical assessment tool, its widespread use offers two major opportunities for ad-vancing the understanding of attentional bias and emotion.
