Previous research has demonstrated separation between systems supporting memory for appearance and memory for location. However, the interpretation of these results is complicated by a confound occurring because of the simultaneous presentation of objects in multiple-item arrays when assessing memory for appearance and the sequential presentation of items when assessing memory for location. This paper reports an experiment in which sequential or simultaneous modes of presentation were factorially manipulated with memory for visual appearance or memory for location. Spatial interference (tapping) or visual interference (dynamic visual noise) were presented during retention. Appearance versus location interacted with the type of interference task, but mode of presentation did not. These results are consistent with the view that different subsystems within visuo-spatial working memory support memory for appearance and memory for location. 2008 The Experimental Psychology Society.

Memory enhancing effects: Does a production effect exist in short-term memory tasks and if so, how does it interfere with the bootstrapping effect? Unknown author (Queen Margaret University, 2016)Working memory performance during a serial digit recall task has been found to benefit from task-irrelevant additional visuospatial information in the stimulus layout, which is called the bootstrapping paradigm (Darling ...

However, the mechanisms behind ...
