Modeling strategies in Stroop with a general architecture of executive control


This paper presents a preliminary work on a new architecture of executive control (DUCCA), aimed at integration and extension of some leading approaches to executive control. We present DUCCA assumptions and operation and use the architecture to simulate a few effects observed in Stroop-like task, a hallmark test of how control deals with interference. The focus of DUCCA is on how strategical use of general executive mechanisms contributes to Stroop effect. We explain also what is usually neglected in Stroop modeling: the significant individual differences in task performance.
