    The spur of the moment: what jazz improvisation tells cognitive science.Steve Torrance & Frank Schumann - 2019 - AI and Society 34 (2):251-268.
    Improvisation is ubiquitous in life. It deserves, we suggest, to occupy a more central role in cognitive science. In the current paper, we take the case of jazz improvisation as a rich model domain from which to explore the nature of improvisation and expertise more generally. We explore the activity of the jazz improviser against the theoretical backdrop of Dreyfus’s account of expertise as well as of enactivist and 4E accounts of cognition and action. We argue that enactivist and 4E (...)

    Restoration of Attention by Rest in a Multitasking World: Theory, Methodology, and Empirical Evidence.Frank Schumann, Michael B. Steinborn, Jens Kürten, Liyu Cao, Barbara Friederike Händel & Lynn Huestegge - 2022 - Frontiers in Psychology 13.
    In this work, we evaluate the status of both theory and empirical evidence in the field of experimental rest-break research based on a framework that combines mental-chronometry and psychometric-measurement theory. To this end, we provide a taxonomy of rest breaks according to which empirical studies can be classified. Then, we evaluate the theorizing in both the basic and applied fields of research and explain how popular concepts relate to each other in contemporary theoretical debates. Here, we highlight differences between all (...)

    On doing multi-act arithmetic: A multitrait-multimethod approach of performance dimensions in integrated multitasking.Frank Schumann, Michael B. Steinborn, Hagen C. Flehmig, Jens Kürten, Robert Langner & Lynn Huestegge - 2022 - Frontiers in Psychology 13.
    Here we present a systematic plan to the experimental study of test–retest reliability in the multitasking domain, adopting the multitrait-multimethod approach to evaluate the psychometric properties of performance in Düker-type speeded multiple-act mental arithmetic. These form of tasks capacitate the experimental analysis of integrated multi-step processing by combining multiple mental operations in flexible ways in the service of the overarching goal of completing the task. A particular focus was on scoring methodology, particularly measures of response speed variability. To this end, (...)
