Abstract

We conducted an experiment in order to investigate impacts of centralexecutive (CE) functions and modality of secondary task presentation in a dualtaskexperiment. We found that shifting ability, out of three major CE functions(inhibition, shifting, and updating) was particularly important in determiningwhether primary (pedal-tracking) task performance was better in the presence ofauditory, vs. visual, presentation of the secondary task.
