Identifying the locus of compatibility-based backward crosstalk: Evidence from an extended PRP paradigm

Published in:┬áJournal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, Volume 44, Issue 2, 261-276 Abstract “The backward crosstalk effect (BCE) in dual tasking means that characteristics of Task 2 of 2 subsequently performed tasks influence Task 1 performance. This observation indicates that certain features of the second response are already activated to some degree before the first response is selected. Therefore, the BCE challenges bottleneck models, which assume that Task 2 response selection does not begin until Task 1 response selection is finished. Instead, an extended model with a capacity-unlimited response activation stage prior to the bottleneck as the locus… Read More
