This chapter aims to describe electrophysiological evidence indicating that interference in the attentional blink paradigm occurs at an earlier stage than interference in the psychological refractory period paradigm, as might be expected on the basis of the task descriptions. However, the chapter concludes with an explanation of how these different stages of interference can be reconciled with the proposal of a common central limitation, namely working memory access. That is, both input and output processes may need to access working memory, and interference may occur when multiple processes attempt to access working memory simultaneously.

Keywords:   dual-task interference, attentional blink, working memory, electrophysiological evidence, sensory processes, interference
