There is an ever-increasing demand to process multiple streams of information, or multitask, in today’s society. While the demand for multitasking continues to increase, humans remain quite unsuccessful at it. Individuals may struggle with multitasking due to a deficit in switching between tasks (task-switching) or perhaps due to a deficit in dividing their attention across tasks (dual-tasking). Our overarching goal is to better characterize multitasking and to explore ways of mitigating multitasking costs using a variety of behavioral tasks and cognitive neuroscientific methods.
