Inhibition in task switching: The reliability of the n − 2 repetition cost

Published in: The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology, Volume 70, Issue 12, 2419-2433 Abstract “The n − 2 repetition cost seen in task switching is the effect of slower response times performing a recently completed task (e.g. an ABA sequence) compared to performing a task that was not recently completed (e.g. a CBA sequence). This cost is thought to reflect cognitive inhibition of task representations and as such, the n − 2 repetition cost has begun to be used as an assessment of individual differences in inhibitory control; however, the reliability of this measure has not been investigated in a systematic manner. The current study… Read More
