There is now substantial evidence that during visual search, previously searched distractors are stored in memory to prevent them from being reselected. Studies examining which memory resources are involved in this process have indicated that while a concurrent spatial working memory task does affect search slopes, depleting visual working memory (VWM) resources does not. In the present study, we confirm that VWM load indeed has no effect on the search slope; however, there is an increase in… CONTINUE READING
