Metacognition, proactive interference, and working memory : can people monitor for proactive interference at encoding and retrieval? 2007 3302 "The present study investigated whether subjects were sensitive to negative transfer and proactive interference (PI) at encoding and retrieval and whether sensitivity varied with working memory (WM) ability. Monitoring at encoding was assessed by hav...
The mediating role of mind wandering in the relationship between working memory capacity and reading comprehension. 2010 4110 The primary goal of this study was to investigate the mediating role of mind wandering in the relationship between working memory capacity (WMC) and reading comprehension as predicted by the executive-attention theory of WMC (e.g., Kane & Engle, 2...
Executive control and attentional scope in visual search: a latent variable investigation 2012 1213 This study uses latent-variable analysis to investigate the roles of control and attentional scope aspects of working memory (WM) on three visual search tasks that the literature indicates involve controlled processing--preview search (Watson & Humph...
The role of working memory capacity and mind wandering in creativity and insight 2013 2047 Conflicting theories suggest opposing predictions for the role of working memory capacity (WMC) and mind wandering in insight problem solving and creativity. The executive-control-benefit perspective suggests that insight problem solving and creativi...
Using dimensional overlap theory as a framework to explain the relationship between working memory capacity and cognitive control 2014 845 Three experiments examined the relation between working memory capacity (WMC) and two different forms of cognitive conflict: stimulus-stimulus (S-S) and stimulus-response (S-R) interference. My goal was to test whether WMC's relation to conflict-task...
External distractions or more mind wandering? : Evaluating a recent model of conscious thoughts 2015 1022 Mind wandering is a very exciting topic in cognitive science, and as such, different researchers have come up with different hypotheses and models to explain it. One model, introduced by Stawarczyk, Majerus, Maj, Van der Linden, and D’Argembeau in 20...
