tanuki: Some doctoral students at my alma mater are doing fascinating research using Stroop and the MWCST, and have had some successing demonstrating a role for the hippocampus and the anterior cingulate in those tasks. Even though looking at success at those tasks as largely indicative of frontal lobe function is parsimonious, I don't think it tells the whole story.

And just like that, we're the most boring people on LSD (which is, itself, absolutely rife with boring people).

tee hee.  I was a psych geek in college.  It's been 5 years since I graduated, but the brain still fascinates me.  I'm not surprised about the anterior cingulate...i remember it being important for attention (and isn't it technically part of the frontal lobes?  I know its beneath the cortex, so maybe it's considered more midbrain that frontal cortex.  It's been a while since I've had an anatomy class...)  I realize I oversimplified the Stroop/frontal lobe explanation, but the hippocampal involvment surprises me.  I'd ask you some questions about it, but I don't want to hijack this thread anymore than i already have. 

And I should probably stop while I'm still just kind of geeky and not unredeemably so.  ;)

The Implicit Association Test is much more interesting:

I got a 0%.  Then I read the instructions again and scored... another 0%.  Laughing my butt off I tried again and got a 100%.  I guess I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer!

No way, I did the same thing, I have never been good at actually reading directions.
