Temporal precision and the capacity of auditory–verbal short-term memory

Published in: The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology, Volume 70, Issue 12, 2403-2418 Abstract “The capacity of serially ordered auditory–verbal short-term memory (AVSTM) is sensitive to the timing of the material to be stored, and both temporal processing and AVSTM capacity are implicated in the development of language. We developed a novel “rehearsal-probe” task to investigate the relationship between temporal precision and the capacity to remember serial order. Participants listened to a sub-span sequence of spoken digits and silently rehearsed the items and their timing during an unfilled retention interval. After an unpredictable delay, a tone prompted report of the item… Read More
