Competition Between Memory and Perceptual Tasks Involving Physically Similar Stimuli
Greenberg, Seth N.
American Journal of Psychology, 90, 4, 675-87, Dec 77
This research found storage of information in a short-term memory task to have a detrimental effect upon perceptual processing in a detection task. Additionally, it was determined that the magnitude of the effect was related to the degree of visual similarity, but not acoustic similarity, between the stored information and the perceptual information.
