Project: Allocation of time and resources in working memory : Theoretical analysis and experimental investigation of the functioning of the central processing component.

01-JAN-97 – 31-DEC-99

Working memory intervenes in cognitive activities and has limited capacity. Typically, the double task methodology is used to investigate the allocation of capacity. However, in order to d ecide whether capacity sharing is time or resource limited, another methodd must be applied. This research project uses the paradigm of the 'psychological refractary period' to investigate which principles govern the control processes.
