Abstract : The current multiple resources methodology (Navon and Gopher, 1979) was employed to test the spatial-verbal distinction in the Wickens (1980, 1984) multiple resources model. Twelve subjects participated in a timesharing experiment in which a verbal memory search task was paired with another verbal and a spatial task. Reaction time and error data were examined and revealed that the verbal verbal combination was generally performed at greater cost and with more interference than the spatial verbal one. The results were interpreted as general support for the multiple resources distinction between the two codes 0+ processing.
