Abstract : Subjects were required to mentally keep track of the number of occurrences of each of four different symbols presented sequentially. It was found that a green light introduced into the sequence just prior to the presentation of each successive symbol tended to enhance performance. It was suggested that the light served to cue the subjects to complete rehearsal of the current state of the information in preparation for the next stimulus in the sequence. (Author)
