ContentThis workshop is divided into two parts. In the first part, the differences in verbal and visuospatial working memory (WM) of four groups of adult native (L1) speakers (i.e., Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean, and English) are briefly introduced. The findings suggest that reading experience in L1 probably affects cognitive resources such as visuospatial WM, which is consistent with the literature. In the second part, as the main part of the workshop, the full versions of the verbal and the visuospatial WM measures used in the experiments (i.e., a reading span task and a letter rotation task) are shown. Then, practical steps of how to run the tasks with the Eprime software and how to score them are explained.

Note: You’re recommanded to arrive at 4:15 as a particular software (E-Prime 3.0) is required for the workshop.
