Getting real with response inhibition U+2013 characterizing pure inhibitory function in healthy participants and people with ADHD (01J09619)

Response inhibition is a crucial cognitive-control function, which is derailed in important clinical disorders. Typically, it is characterized using the Stop-signal task. Here, we highlight one largely ignored (but crucial) limitation to its interpretability (U+2018trigger failuresU+2019). We will systematically explore which factors determine their frequency, how to counteract their occurrence, and apply this to a highly relevant clinical group (ADHD).
