Dual-task interference in simple tasks: data and theory.
  • H. Pashler
  • Psychology
    Psychological bulletin
  • 1 September 1994
TLDR
These conclusions challenge widely accepted ideas about attentional resources and probe reaction time methodologies and suggest new ways of thinking about continuous dual-task performance, effects of extraneous stimulation, and automaticity.
Familiarity and visual change detection

  • 1 July 1988
Detection of change when one display of familiar objects replaces another display might be based purely upon visual codes, or also on identity information (i.e., knowingwhat was presentwhere in the
Distributed practice in verbal recall tasks: A review and quantitative synthesis.
TLDR
A meta-analysis of the distributed practice effect suggests that ISI and retention interval operate jointly to affect final-test retention; specifically, the ISI producing maximal retention increased as retention interval increased.
Learning Styles
TLDR
It is concluded that at present, there is no adequate evidence base to justify incorporating learning-styles assessments into general educational practice and limited education resources would better be devoted to adopting other educational practices that have a strong evidence base.
The Psychology of Attention
TLDR
Attention, memory and action: central processing limitations in sensorimotor tasks attention and memory automaticity, effort and control and theorizing about attention.
Processing stages in overlapping tasks: evidence for a central bottleneck.

  • 1 June 1984
TLDR
The absence of overadditive interactions in these experiments, and also the effects of manipulating first-task factors in Experiment 5, seems to argue against capacity sharing as the source of the slowing in this task combination.
Puzzlingly High Correlations in fMRI Studies of Emotion, Personality, and Social Cognition 1
TLDR
It is argued that, in some cases, other analysis problems likely created entirely spurious correlations and the data from these studies could be reanalyzed with unbiased methods to provide accurate estimates of the correlations in question and urge authors to perform such reanalyses.
Chronometric Evidence for Central Postponement in Temporally Overlapping Tasks
When the stimuli from two tasks arrive in rapid succession (the overlapping tasks paradigm), response delays are typically observed. Two general types of models have been proposed to account for
How persuasive is a good fit? A comment on theory testing.
TLDR
A better way to test a theory with free parameters is to determine how the theory constrains possible outcomes, assess how firmly actual outcomes agree with those constraints, and determine if plausible alternative outcomes would have been inconsistent with the theory, allowing for the variability of the data.
Attention and performance.
TLDR
Recent research suggests that practice does not have as dramatic effects as is commonly believed, and it may turn out that some mental operations are automatized in the strongest sense, this may be uncommon.
