    Stroop Effect Experiments, Labs and Studies


      The Stroop effect occurs when there isn't an identity between a word's (or a few words') print color and its semantic meaning. For example, the word "red" is printed in blue. In this case, it's much more difficult to process the word in the brain and to pronounce it in comparision to a situation when the word "red" is printed in red.

      Reading the first line of the colored words is easier and quicker than the second. That's a simple demonstration of the Stroop effect.
