A temporal account of the limited processing capacity

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (1):122-123 (2001)

Abstract
A temporal account of the mental capacities for processing information may not be relevant in a context where the goal is to search for storage capacity expressed in chunks. However, if mental capacity and information processing is the question, the time issue can be rehabilitated. A very different temporal viewpoint on capacity limit is proposed in this commentary.
