Differentiation in working memory

Kristof Kovacs

Correlations between mental tests measuring different cognitive abilities are lower in higher IQ bands, resulting in a general factor that explains less variance than in below-average populations. This phenomenon is referred to as differentiation. Even though differentiation is well documented with mental ability tests, it is demonstrated for the first time that differentiation also exists in working memory (complex span) tasks.
