Task Details

 

The working memory period task can be categorised in the 'complex-span' WM tasks as it requires the participant to store representations to be recalled later but doing so while engaging in other forced cognitive processing. What differentiates the working memory period task is that the number of items to remember in a trial remains static throughout. The difficulty of the task is manipulated through the length of the mathematicla operations the participant has to complete in order to reveal the to-be-remembered item.
