The variant of the Stroop effect we designed to be appropriate for ages as young as 2 to 3 years involved presenting a picture depicting a simple object on one side of a screen directly in front of the child and requiring the child to respond with a key that matched the stimulus they were shown (Gerardi-Caulton, in press). The appropriate key could be either on the side of the stimulus (compatible trial) or on the side opposite the stimulus (incompatible trial). The child’s prepotent response was to press the key on the side of the target irrespective of its identity; however, the task required the child to inhibit the prepotent response and to respond instead based on identity.

Neuroimaging methods are sensitive to changes in blood flow that accompany neural activity. When a brain area is being used to perform computations in high-level skills, it will increase in activity (Corbetta, Miezin, Dobmeyer, Shulman, & Petersen, 1990). As children learn a new skill, they may show a high level of variability as they try different strategies (Siegler, 1997). Each of these strategies is represented by a connected set of neural areas that carry out particular computations in some order.

Priming can produce reduced reaction time for responding to a related target that follows the prime. Neuroimaging and cellular studies suggest that the number of neurons activated by a primed target is reduced over Developing mechanisms of self-regulation 23 those activated in nonprimed target processing. The prime apparently tunes the neurons involved in the target event so that only those most appropriate to processing the subsequent target are activated (Ungerleider, Courtney, & Haxby, 1998).
