Automatic Versus Controlled Processing in Variable Temporal Context and Stimulus-Response Mapping

The purpose of the investigation was not a strict individualization of automatic versus controlled tasks, as in most experiments on this subject. We claim that the level of the task is inappropriate for such an individualization. We rather used the methodology of event-related potentials in an attempt — to tease apart automatic versus controlled processing stages inside a task; — to evaluate the effects of attention-control modulation on these different processing stages.
