  1. ncbi Implicit task sets in task switching?
    Gesine Dreisbach
    Institute of Psychology I, Dresden University of Technology, Dresden, Germany
    J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn 32:1221-33. 2006
    ..Slower response times for these incongruent stimuli as compared with congruent stimuli and the absence of switch costs suggest that participants acquired (presumably implicit) knowledge about 4 different stimulus-response categories...
  2. ncbi Preparatory adjustment of cognitive control in the task switching paradigm
    Gesine Dreisbach
    Institute of Psychology I, Dresden University of Technology, 01062 Dresden, Germany
    Psychon Bull Rev 13:334-8. 2006
    ..In high-repetition blocks, however, the preparation effects were less pronounced. The results support the assumption that preparation is dynamically adjusted to the expected task requirements...
  3. ncbi The role of task rules and stimulus-response mappings in the task switching paradigm
    Gesine Dreisbach
    Institute of Psychology I, Dresden University of Technology, 01062 Dresden, Germany
    Psychol Res 71:383-92. 2007
    ..This detrimental effect disappeared with more complex stimuli (Experiment 2). Results will be discussed with respect to cognitive control...
  4. ncbi How positive affect modulates cognitive control: the costs and benefits of reduced maintenance capability
    Gesine Dreisbach
    Dresden University of Technology, Germany
    Brain Cogn 60:11-9. 2006
    ..The data will be discussed with respect to existing theories on positive affect, cognitive control, and dopamine...
  5. ncbi Dopamine and cognitive control: the influence of spontaneous eyeblink rate and dopamine gene polymorphisms on perseveration and distractibility
    Gesine Dreisbach
    Institute of Psychology I, Dresden University of Technology, Dresden, Germany
    Behav Neurosci 119:483-90. 2005
    ..Results converge with neuropsychological models that suggest a modulatory role of prefrontal dopaminergic activity for processes of cognitive control...
  6. ncbi That's what task sets are for: shielding against irrelevant information
    Gesine Dreisbach
    Technische Universitat Dresden, Dresden, Germany
    Psychol Res 72:355-61. 2008
    ..This benefit turns into costs in classical task switching paradigms. From this perspective, switch costs can be interpreted as the consequence of successful shielding on the previous task...

    Johannes Muller
    Institute of Psychology II, Dresden University of Technology, Dresden, Germany
    Eur J Neurosci 26:3661-8. 2007

    Gesine Dreisbach
    Psychology Department, Dresden University of Technology, Dresden, Germany
    J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn 30:343-53. 2004
    ..Results are consistent with neuropsychological models according to which effects of positive affect on cognitive control are mediated by increased dopamine levels in frontal brain areas...
  10. doi Conflict-triggered goal shielding: response conflicts attenuate background monitoring for prospective memory cues
    Thomas Goschke
    Department of Psychology, Technische Universitat Dresden, Dresden, Germany
    Psychol Sci 19:25-32. 2008
    ..Thus, evidence for enhanced recruitment of control following conflict may partly reflect aftereffects of goal shielding on the conflict trial itself...
  11. doi Context-sensitive adjustments of cognitive control: conflict-adaptation effects are modulated by processing demands of the ongoing task
    Rico Fischer
    Department of Psychology, Technische Universitat Dresden, Dresden, Germany
    J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn 34:712-8. 2008
    ..Results suggest that not only response conflict due to interference from task-irrelevant features but also processing demands of task-relevant features determine the level of control adjustment in the subsequent trial...

    Manja Metzker
    Institut fur Psychologie I, Technische Universitat Dresden, 01062 Dresden, Germany
    J Exp Psychol Hum Percept Perform 35:1770-83. 2009
    ..The authors therefore suggest that the Simon effect also depends on priming from response features to stimulus features. Theoretical implications of these findings are discussed...

    Institut für Kognitionsforschung, Universität der Bundeswehr Hamburg, Germany
    J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn 29:289-97. 2003
    ..The reduction of interference was dependent on endogenous preparation for the new task and did not occur for unpredictable task switches or for task switches that were precued without information about the identity of the new task...
  15. ncbi Preparatory processes in the task-switching paradigm: evidence from the use of probability cues
    Gesine Dreisbach
    Institute of Cognitive Research, University of the Federal Armed Forces, Hamburg, Germany
