Abstract: In this target article, Logie makes a strong case for considering variation when seeking to understand mechanisms of memory and cognition. As he puts it, “people may use their cognition in different ways to perform the same task in the laboratory and in everyday life” (Logie, 2018, p. 472). We heartily concur. Here, we underline this message by providing additional examples of inter-individual and between-group variation from research related to our areas of expertise, and extend this point by considering intra-individual variation across different instances of task performance. Our examples come from research in cognitive control, memory, everyday cognition, and cognitive aging.
