  1. ncbi request reprint When knowledge is not enough: the phenomenon of goal neglect in preschool children
    John N Towse
    Department of Psychology, Fylde College, Lancaster University, Lancaster LA1 4YF, UK
    J Exp Child Psychol 96:320-32. 2007
    ..Data demonstrate the importance of, and place constraints on, current theories of information regulation and foreground the notion of graded representations in working memory and executive functioning...
  2. doi request reprint The endurance of children's working memory: a recall time analysis
    John N Towse
    Department of Psychology, Lancaster University, Lancaster LA1 4YF, UK
    J Exp Child Psychol 101:156-63. 2008
    ..Overall, timing data illustrate that recall in working memory tasks involves subtle processes of item access rather than simple readout of information from an immediate store...
  3. pmc Task experience and children's working memory performance: a perspective from recall timing
    John N Towse
    Department of Psychology, Fylde College, Lancaster University, Bailrigg, Lancaster, UK
    Dev Psychol 44:695-706. 2008
    ..The task demands of working memory change as a function of task experience, with a combination of accuracy and response timing in novel task situations being the strongest predictor of cognitive attainment...
  4. pmc The recall of information from working memory. Insights from behavioural and chronometric perspectives
    John N Towse
    Department of Psychology, Lancaster University, Lancaster, United Kingdom
    Exp Psychol 55:371-83. 2008

    John N Towse
    Department of Psychology, Lancaster University, Bailrigg, Lancaster LA1 4YF, UK
    Dev Sci 13:779-89. 2010
    ..At the same time, the shape and strength of this function varies with the task configuration. Taken together, these results demonstrate the potential for reconstructive influences to shape working memory performance among children...
  6. ncbi request reprint Working memory period: the endurance of mental representations
    John N Towse
    Department of Psychology, Fylde College, Lancaster University, Bailrigg, Lancaster, UK
    Q J Exp Psychol A 58:547-71. 2005
    ..In addition, period is highly correlated with span and shows similar effects of varying the order in which stimuli are presented. We conclude that the durability of representations is an important factor in both span and period...

    Department of Psychology, Lancaster University, Lancaster LA1 4YF, UK
    J Exp Child Psychol 82:156-84. 2002
    ..Other aspects of the results suggest that there can be interactions between processing and storage but it is argued that these cannot be straightforwardly explained in terms of either task switching or resource sharing...
