Abstract

An experimental study with the n-back task is described. The results suggest that disrupting the formation of a task-specific strategy by a concurrent irrelevant task promotes the development of a task-independent strategy. A computational cognitive model demonstrates how this task-independent strategy might be implemented in our brain.
