Automaticity versus time-sharing in timing and tracking dual-task performancePsychological research (1998)
AbstractExamined the interfering effects of a manual tracking task on timing performance. Ss generated a series of 5-sec temporal productions under control (timing only) and experimental (timing and pursuit rotor tracking) conditions. Timing was more variable under experimental conditions, a finding consistent with attentional models which argue that timing tasks compete with concurrent distractor tasks for limited processing resources.
