Processing demands associated with relational complexity: Testing predictions with dual-task methodologies
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (6):832-833 (1998)
We discuss how modified dual-task approaches may be used to verify the degree to which cognitive tasks are capacity demanding. We also delineate some of the complexities associated with the use of the “double easy-to-hard” paradigm for testing claim of Halford, Wilson & Phillips that hierarchical reasoning imposes processing demands equivalent to those of transitive reasoning.
