Abstract

The effects of interactivity and ego depletion on planning were investigated using a sequential-task paradigm. Participants completed a 16-part trip-planning task in either a high-interactivity condition—where cards corresponding to events could be moved—or low-interactivity condition—during which moves were dictated to the experimenter and participants kept their hands down. Before that, half of the participants undertook an ego-depletion task. Planning performance was significantly better in the high than in the low-interactivity conditions; the main effect of ego depletion was never significant. These results suggest that interactivity augments working memory resources.
