In addition to the general double-tasking costs, there are even more specific forms of interference between tasks in multi-tasking. In particular, we are investigating the case of the so-called "backward crosstalk" in which aspects of a second task already influence the performance in the first task. We try to empirically isolate different forms of such crosstalk effects and theoretically describe their causes. This work was funded by the MWK Baden-Württemberg and is now part of the DFG project JA 2307 / 6-1 as part of the DFG Priority Program 1772 and will be published in cooperation with Prof. Dr. Rolf Ulrich (Tübingen) performed.
