Baddeley, A., Chincotta, D. and Adlam, A. (2001) Working memory and the control of action: Evidence from task switching. Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, 130 ( 4). pp. 641-657. ISSN 0096-3445
By Baddeley, Alan; Chincotta, Dino; Adlam, Anna Journal of Experimental Psychology: General. Vol 130(4), A series of 7 experiments used dual-task methodology to investigate the role of working memory in the operation of a simple action-control plan or program involving regular switching between addition and subtraction. Lists requiring switching were slower than blocked lists and showed 2 concurrent task effects. Demanding executive tasks impaired performance on both blocked and switched lists, whereas articulatory suppression impaired principally the switched condition. Implications for models of task switching and working memory and for the Vygotskian concept of verbal control of action are discussed.
