Think of two different scenarios. In both scenarios the subject is looking at emotional images, but in the first one emotional stimuli "interfere" with the behaviour, while in the second one emotionali stimuli are related to his/her goal.
In the scenario A the subject looks at emotional images but is not focused on the emotional content (for example, his/her task is to pay attention to the size of the image).
In the scenario B the subject looks at emotional images and is focused on the emotional content (for example, his/her task is to rate the image).
Which psychological processes would you think are most different between the two scenarios? In which way the brain is differentially affected by this "emotional interference", in your opinion?
