Functional equivalence of verbal and spatial information in serial short-term memory.
Performance on a test of serial memory for the spatial position of a sequence of dots showed similarities to typical results from the serial recall of verbal material: a marked increase in error withExpand

Habituation to irrelevant speech: Effects on a visual short-term memory task
The Baddeley and Hitch (1974) formulation of short-term or working memory embodied a phonological store within the articulatory loop component of the model. Later formulations specifically postulatedExpand

Scientists' coping strategies in an evolving research system: the case of life scientists in the UK
Scientists in academia have struggled to adjust to a policy climate of uncertain funding and loss of freedom from direction and control. How UK life scientists have negotiated this challenge, andExpand

Characteristics of visual interference with visuospatial working memory.
Recent discussions of visuospatial working memory have suggested that this subsystem may incorporate a visual buffer which holds visuospatial information relatively passively. EmpiricalExpand

Saponins of the peanut: isolation of some peanut sapogenins and their comparison with the soya sapogenols by glass-paper chromatography.
Abstract A column is described that directly scales up glass-paper chromatography. The new column was used to obtain milligram quantities of peanut sapogenins A 1 , A 2 , C 1 , and C 2 . The silicicExpand

Galanin‐immunoreactive synaptic terminals on basal forebrain cholinergic neurons in the rat
Previous studies have indicated that galanin is one of the most abundant peptides in the basal forebrain and that it has a significant modulatory influence on cholinergic transmission. The aim of theExpand

Reporting words from the eye or the ear: to write or to speak?
Two experiments are described which investigate whether memory performance is better with written or oral recall of a letter string. Together they demonstrate that spoken forward serial recall ofExpand
