WM components Behavioural variables
Central executive Manipulation Digit forward vs backward spans
    Corsi forward vs backward spans
    Alphabetical vs serial recalls fromĀ  the alpha span task
  Inhibition Interference vs naming times= interference score from the Stroop test
  Flexibility Flexibility vs interference times= flexibility score from the Stroop test
Phonological loop Articulatory rehearsal component Long vs short words spans= word-length effect
  Phonological store Similar vs dissimilar letters spans = phonological similarity effect
Visual sketchpad Visual component Matrices spans
  Dynamic component Forward Corsi block-tapping spans
