Example text

Although the case where nothing needs updating requires few cognitive resources, it does not also promote a local focus on any particular grid items. 4 Conclusions: Effects of Global and Local Processing on VSWM The present work explored how global (Experiment 1) and local (Experiment 2) processing affect the components of and binding within VSWM. Experiment 1 induced global location processing by organizing locations into an interpretable whole [18]. Experiment 2 used task demands inherent in memory updating to promote local processing.

Concerning spatial abilities, when it comes to memorizing survey descriptions, individuals with strong spatial abilities (as measured with the MPFB [7] or MRT [16]) have a better recall (in verification test and map drawing task, for instance) than those with weaker spatial abilities. But the difference in their performance becomes negligible when route descriptions are memorized (and tested using various tasks). In some studies, like those focusing on VSWM [17], individuals with a high spatial span recalled a route text better than those with a low spatial span [18], while other studies found no difference between individuals with high and low spatial abilities (measured with the MPFB [7] or MRT [14]).
