PROBLEM STATEMENT

WM has been studied by researchers of psychology, neuroscience, and related disciplines using various brain imaging techniques such as electroencephalography (EEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).15,16 However, the significant role of attention in WM is still of considerable interest for researchers, especially the underlying neuronal mechanism of attention resources in information manipulation in WM.

In this experiment, we aimed to provide supporting evidence regarding the interaction between attention and WM and the neural activities that underlie the interaction between these two constructs.

Based on the problem statement mentioned previously, the objective of this study was to analyze the influence of attention in neural activities of the brain while performing a WM task. This can be examined in two different stages, i.e., encoding and maintenance. Hence, the objectives, in a clearer way, can be expressed as follows:

1. Analyze the influence of attention during the encoding stage on WM

load (in the maintenance stage).

2. Analyze the behavior of WM in the maintenance stage while distraction and interruption is introduced through contralateral delay activity (CDA) during feature delayed response task.
