Working memory capacity and the hemispheric organization of the brain

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (1):121-122 (2001)

Abstract

Different hypotheses about the mechanisms underlying working memory lead to different predictions about working memory capacity when information is distributed across the two hemispheres. We present preliminary data suggesting that memory scanning time (a parameter often associated with working memory capacity) varies depending on how information is subdivided across hemispheres. The data are consistent with a distributed model of working memory.
