Abstract : The research deals with the effects of a perceptual motor filler activity upon the retention for groups of words and the formulating of an empirical analogy between short-term memory tasks and the division of attention. Results indicate that there is a single central channel for information-processing and that success in time-sharing depends on the amount of spare mental capacity. (Author)
