Surprising effects of working memory load on visual selective attention (2019)
Alternative TitleHow working memory load really interacts with visual selective attention : A challenge to current assumptions
The role of working memory in visual selective attention was investigated. Participants ignored distractor faces, superimposed on target celebrity names, under low or high memory loads. Interference effects from famous (compared to anonymous) distractor faces were invariant as a function of load, contradicting conclusions from an influential Science (2001) article.

Cross-language positive and negative priming effects reverse when priming manipulations proceed from L2 to L1, compared with L1 to L2. Neumann E; Nkrumah I (2018)An ongoing controversy in the negative priming (NP) literature is whether NP effects can be obtained when a large pool of words are used. Experiment 1 presents the first priming study conducted in an African language, ...
Chines-English bilinguals’ language regulation elucidated by cross-language positive and negative priming Neumann E; Qiu P (2018)A monolingual and a bilingual primed lexical decision task were used to investigate priming effects produced by attended and ignored visual stimuli. In the Chinese language unilingual experiment, accelerated responses ...
