Abstract

A study was conducted to compare the acoustic characteristics of responses to color-naming incongruent and neutral stimuli. Twenty-four native English speaking young adult subjects participated in the study, having minimum Snellen fraction and pure-tone air-conduction thresholds appropriate for their age group. The study included two blocks of 16 trials, which were incongruent and neutral. The incongruent block included the four-colored words Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow printed in different colors. The neutral block included strings of 4 Os printed in green, blue, yellow, and red font colors. Participants were tested individually in a single-walled acoustic chamber, seated in front of a computer monitor. They were asked to loudly name the font colors of the words presented on the monitor into the microphone placed before them.
