  • Determinant processing factors of recall performance in reading span tests: an empirical study of Japanese EFL learners

    NAKANISHI Hiroshi , YOKOKAWA Hirokazu

    … This paper reports on experiments examining the effect of processing cognitive load on storage functions during the performance of different types of reading span tests (RST). … These results suggest that syntactic processing places a heavy cognitive load on working memory (WM) resources, thereby leaving few resources for storage functions while Japanese EFL learners are performing the RSTs. …
