This study examined whether changes in spatial Stroop interference and facilitation occurred in prototypical and non-prototypical spatial positions, as determined by distance from fixation. Participants were shown the spatial terms above, below, left, and right, and neutral words. These terms were either congruent or incongruent with their spatial position in reference to a fixation cross, and they occurred in three levels (1 degree, 3 degrees, 6 degrees) above, below, left, and right of fixation. Results indicated that a spatial Stroop effect did occur, and that the effects of prototoypicality on interference and facilitation varied between participants. This suggests that spatial prototypes might not be the same for all people, and that some interference may occur at the semantic level.
