The role of different components of working memory in writing

Galbraith, David, Hallam, Jenny, Olive, Thierry and Le Bigot, Nathalie (2009) The role of different components of working memory in writing In Proceedings of the Thirty-First Annual Conference of the Cognitive Science Society. Cognitive Science Society., pp. 3028-3033.

Abstract

This paper describes the results of an experiment designed to assess the effects of self-monitoring and 3 different kinds of secondary task on the development of ideas during planning, and on the quality of subsequently produced text. An LSA-based measure was used to assess the development of ideas during planning and Coh-Metrix was used to assess effects on text. The results suggest that the spatial component of working memory plays an important role in the development of ideas during planning, and that this affects the quality of the final text. Individual differences in self-monitoring also affect the extent to which content develops during planning and are associated with differences in the coherence of the final text
