Cognitive Interference from Background Television: Structural Effects on Verbal and Spatial Processing.
Armstrong, G. Blake
Communication Studies, v44 n1 p56-70 Spr 1993
Investigates whether background television produces structural interference with aspects of cognitive processing. Finds a significant deleterious effect on a geometric analogies and completion task involving visuo-spatial processing and marginal improvement on a parallel verbal analogy test. Shows that concurrent television exposure had no influence on a test of semantic memory access. (SR)
