These included a congruent condition, in which the body expression matched the word, or an incongruent condition, in which body expression and word were mismatched; we expected the latter combination to produce emotional conflict.
There was also a significant interaction between congruency (congruent versus incongruent) trials and condition [F(1.467, 42.533)= 5.097, p=.018].
However, under the incongruent conditions, the N400 latency was significantly shortened only in the paliperidone group (from 424.13 [+ or -] 110.42 ms to 4.7.41 [+ or -] 154.59 ms) and the N400 amplitude was significantly increased only in the risperidone group (from 5.80 [+ or -] 3.50 [micro]v to 7.17 [+ or -] 5.51 [micro]v; P < 0.01; [Table 2]).{Table 2}
Bias score = 0.5 x ([RT.sub.incongruent] - [RT.sub.congruent]), where incongruent corresponds to the probes replacing neutral words and congruent corresponds to the probes replacing threat words.
The second group with 10 participants was exposed to 40 (20 x 2) congruent pairs of audiovisual stimuli (positive image-sound vs negative image-sound) and the last and third group with 10 participants that were exposed to 40 (20 x 2) incongruent pairs of audiovisual stimuli.
Cases of crossmodal integration include the McGurk effect (McGurk & MacDonald, 1976), which is concerned with the combination of incongruent information from visual and hearing modalities (Massaro, 1999).
On congruent trials, the key that is the correct response for that color is on the same side as the stimulus, while on incongruent trials, the correct response key is on the opposite side.
At a joint press conference after the meeting Lavrov stated that Turkey and Russia hold different opinions regarding the future of Syrian President al-Assad and that incongruent approaches to the crisis are bound to doom any agreement between the two countries.
Dependent variables for the study were Total Reaction Time ([RT.sub.T]), Incongruent Reaction Time ([RT.sub.I]), Congruent Reaction Time ([RT.sub.C]), Error rate (i.e., the relative number of all errors of confusion and elimination), GZ value (i.e., the rate at which participants mark off each d2 and the overall number of marked letters within the d2 test), and SKL value (i.e., a measure of attention; the standardized number of accurate answers minus confusion errors).
A romance for Zinc initially appears incongruent for her character, however, she is finding herself and discovering strengths she was unaware of, so the romance is simply another manifestation of that journey.
At the time Mr McFarlane said: "I want everyone to understand that where we see incongruent conduct behaviour we will stamp it out."
