Experimental Evidence for Working Memory

What proof is there that working memory exists, that it is comprised of various parts, that it plays out multiple assignments? The working memory model makes the accompanying two forecasts:

1. On the off chance that two errands utilize a similar part (of working memory), they can’t be performed effectively together. 

2. On the off chance that two errands utilize various segments, it should be conceivable to perform them just as together as independently. 

Point: To research if members can utilize various pieces of working memory simultaneously. 

Strategy: Conducted a trial in which members were approached to perform two undertakings simultaneously (double assignment method) – a digit range task which expected them to rehash a rundown of numbers, and a verbal thinking task which expected them to answer genuine or bogus to different inquiries (e.g., B is trailed by A?). 

Results: As the number of digits expanded in the digit length undertakings, members took more time to respond to the thinking questions, however very little longer – just divisions of a second. What’s more, they didn’t make further mistakes in the verbal thinking errands as the number of digits expanded.  

End: The verbal thinking task utilized the focal official, and the digit length task used the phonological circle.
