Differential Distraction Effects in Short-Term and Long-Term Retention of Pictures and Words
Pellegrino, James W.; And Others
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Learning and Memory, 2, 5, 541-47, Sep 76
Comparisons between recall levels following simple acoustic or visual tasks and the simultaneous visual-plus-acoustic task are not based upon equivalent amounts of interference within each modality. This research attempts to test more precisely the relationship between visual and acoustic interference by using a sequential rather than a simultaneous dual-distraction task. (Author/RK)
