I did the Stroop Effect for my experiment. Its pretty simple to conduct and you can change it slightly which gets you extra points. It where you have a list of words saying "blue, green, red" in black and they you have another list of words exactly the same but the word "blue" is in the colour red and the word "green" is in the colour blue etc etc. You time how long it takes participants to respond to each list. They have to say what the word says rather than the colour but they get confused on the second list and sometimes say the colour of the word rather than the word. Its very simple to do and the theory isnt that bad either. It is part of attention in my book. There is quite a lot of info over the internet on it as well. You can use shapes with words in or animals or number. There have even been ones done with sound. You just have to look round a bit.
