Previous research has suggested that attention control is strongly implicated in working memory span. The current study utilized participants who had previously been tested for working memory capacity with the operation span, symmetry span and reading span tasks. Participants with high or low working memory spans where included in this study. These participants completed the Go/No-Go, Global/Local and Stop-Signal tasks, which examined different aspects of attention control. No significant differences were found between the working memory span groups on these three tasks.
