    Psychon Bull Rev 20:897-904. 2013
    ..The results favor the assumption that individual differences in WMC are, in fact, not (always) related to the magnitude of distraction. Implications for the nature of WMC are discussed. ..

    Patrik Sörqvist
    University of Gavle, Sweden

    Patrik Sörqvist
    Department of Building, Energy and Environmental Engineering, University of Gavle, Gavle, Sweden
    Scand J Psychol 53:97-102. 2012

    Patrik Sörqvist
    Department of Building, Energy and Environmental Engineering, University of Gavle, SE 801 76 Gävle, Sweden
    Psychon Bull Rev 19:245-50. 2012
    ..These results indicate that high memory ability increases habituation rate, and they support theories proposing a role for cognitive control in habituation and in some forms of auditory distraction...
  5. doi Episodic long-term memory of spoken discourse masked by speech: what is the role for working memory capacity?
    Patrik Sörqvist
    Linkoping University, Linkoping, Sweden
    J Speech Lang Hear Res 55:210-8. 2012

    Patrik Sörqvist
    Laboratory of Applied Psychology, Centre for Built Environment, University of Gavle, Gavle, Sweden
    Noise Health 12:217-24. 2010
