C) The strategy of information processing. Subjects may differ in the sequence and nature of the elementary information processes they apply; they may also differ in the choice of the internal representation they use (ie, either analogue or symbolic). Therefore one way to characterise a strategy is by its component processes and the organisation of these in a coherent whole. Second, strategies are considered modifiable and flexible. In general, strategy refers to a set of internal cognitive procedures, a set that can be modified.

In this experiment, subjects were confronted with two levels of a memory search task. In the , simple' condition subjects had to determine whether or not a letter was a member of a previously presented memory set. In the 'double' condition the subject in addition had to keep a mental account of how often each letter of the memory set was presented. As the interval between stimulus presentations (T) becomes increasingly filled with mental operations (TR ), the afi\plitude of the mid-frequency component decreases systematically.

It is not under direct subject control and is responsible for the performance of well-developed skilled behaviours. Automatic processing typically develops when subjects process stimuli consistently over many trials. Controlled processing is characterised as a slow, generally serial, effortful, capacity-limited, subject-regulated processing mode which must be used to deal with novel or inconsistent information (Schneider et al 1984). Examples of automatic processing are semantic memory search and automatic encoding of stimuli.
