THE ROLE OF COGNITIVE AND PERCEPTUAL LOAD ON THE STRENGTH OF INHIBITION
Languages of publication
The aim of two experiments (N = 237) was to investigate whether: 1. cognitive inhibition is sensitive to cognitive and perceptual load, and 2. individual differences in cognitive capacity correspond to individual differences in cognitive inhibition. The results support the assumptions that cognitive load and difficulty of selection decrease the cognitive inhibition. Additionally, the results suggest that the cognitive inhibition results from allocation of cognitive resources and that individual differences in cognitive capacity are related to the ability to efficiently handle irrelevant information.
