Proactive and reactive conflict regulation (3F009109)

The flexible regulation of response conflicts is considered a central challenge for the cognitive system. In general, two possible ways of dealing with response conflicts are assumed: reactive and proactive conflict regulation. This project aims at exporing the importance of the often overlooked proactive control, using implicit and explicit expectancy manipulations to further clarify the underlying (neural) mechanisms.
