Abstract: Experimental Studies of Human-Computer Interaction: Working memory and mental workload in complex cognition Complex cognition is readily described as cognitive tasks requiring the coordination of multiple steps of processing or tasks exceeding short term memory capacity. Similarly, mental workload may be described as the use and temporary expenditure of a finite amount of information processing capacity. In the current study, consisting of eight experiments, the mental workload of complex cognit... more
