Graduates and current students both tout the Master of Accountancy (M.Acc.) program as a challenging academic regimen that offers preparation for the Certified Public Accountant exam, while at the same time incorporating relevant real-world examples that equip them for the work force. Students praise professors in the department for their approachability. “While they have powerful positions, they remain humble enough to make students a priority,” says Phylicia Coleman, a recent graduate, who works as an auditor in the Nashville office of Deloitte & Touche, LLP. Another recent graduate, Duresha Rice, offers the following about her accounting professors: “They want to see every student succeed and become successful.” After graduating, Rice began her career at Faulkner, Mackie and Cochran, P.C., as an external auditor. “Thanks to the accounting department at MTSU, I have secured a position with the Tennessee Department of Audit,” says former master’s student Adria Bakke., These powerful testimonies from current and former students illustrate how the M.Acc. program prepares students for professional jobs in accounting and other related fields.

The Stroop effect demonstrates that the identification of the colour a word is presented in is slowed down when the word spells out a different colour (i.e. it is incongruent; e.g. the word ‘RED’ presented in blue) compared to when the word spells out a word that is unrelated to colour (e.g. the word ’ TOP’ presented in red). It is a commonly used paradigm to measure selective attention (see MacLeod, 1991, for a review) and is thought to arise due to the need to inhibit the automatic action of reading a word and performing the less practiced action of colour naming (see Cattell, 1886; MacLeod & MacDonald, 2000; MacLeod, 2005; Posner & Snyder, 1975). It is one of the most commonly used paradigms in cognitive and clinical psychological research and therefore it is important to understand the cognitive and neural mechanisms underpinning the task. Since the idea was initially put forward by Klein (1964), there have been studies showing that the Stroop effect is made up of interference at multiple levels. Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) assays have investigated the separable neural representations of response and semantic conflict using a paradigm that maps two responses to one response key. The have shown that separate neural regions underpin these types of conflict. However, recent work has criticized this manipulation as a method for indexing semantic conflict (Hasshim & Parris, 2014; 2015). An alternative method is to use response set membership to manipulate the response and semantic conflict present on any trial (Hasshim & Parris, 2017). In separate work it has been argued that Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) of the Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex effects task level conflict (Vanderhasselt et al., 2006). The aim of the present project is to use both fMRI and TMS establish the role of the dorsolateral lateral prefrontal cortex and the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) in processing response, semantic and task conflict in this important cognitive and clinical task.
