The topic of the research was individual differences in dual task performance. It addressed the basic question Is performance on multi-component tasks predicted by performance on the individual components performed separately In the first series of experiments, we used a dual task involving memory and verbal processing components to predict a psychometric measure of verbal ability. Single and dual task performance were found to be highly correlated. The two types of measures predicted performance on the criterion verbal ability measure equally well.
