Imran,

if you have coded your design matrix to contain the 4 regressors
'old correct', 'old incorrect', 'new correct', 'new incorrect', you
would assess possible positive and negative interaction effects with
these contrast weightings:
'1 -1 -1 1' and '-1 1 1 -1'. You can then take the resulting contrast
images from this 1st-level analyses up to the 2nd (group) level, for
example doing a 1-sample t-test. Main effects at the 1st level would
be assessed with '1 1 -1 -1' (and for the opposite direction: '-1-1 1
1') and '1 -1 1 -1' (and for the opposite direction: '-1 1 -1 1').

Good luck,

Tobias.

The SPM5 manual has an example of using a factorial design at the first level, but the directions are vague. Maybe someone can give us more case specific directions as to how to run the analysis.
