The Cognitive Neuroscience of Working Memory

David G. Pearson

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the body of evidence linking physical movement, eye movement and attentional control with retention of visual and spatial features of stimuli. It describes work suggesting that oculomotor control has a close association with retaining movement sequences, such as in the Corsi blocks task, and that the effects of eye movements can be separated from the effects of shifts of visual attention. It then goes on to describe a theory based on indexing individual objects, with executive or attentional control required to keep track of multiple objects moving in the visual field.

Keywords:   eye movement, working memory, attentional control, Corsi blocks task, oculomotor processes
