Simultaneous vs multitasking[edit]

There seems to be a discrepancy in the definition of multitasking between the two sections.

The Multitasking and divided section states that it can be defined as attempting to simultaneously perform two or more tasks. In contrast, the Simultaneous attention section defines simultaneous attention similarly, while instead defining multitasking as the alternating of attention between tasks or the halting of an activity before proceeding to the next.

The Multitasking section discusses much information that is consistent with the definition it gives. The term simultaneous attention appears to me as redundant as it’s defined almost exactly the same as multitasking.

To conclude, I propose the information in the Simultaneous section be merged into the Multitasking and divided section and the concept to be given a single and consistent name and definition. 2601:600:987F:1BD0:8507:C545:6179:AC4D (talk) 08:41, 25 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Source for the Navon Gopher Theory[edit]

in the section on Multitasking and dividing, a specific modality model is mentioned, developed by Navon and Gopher. Should there not a citation to a work in which this model is mentioned? Niels.Scholten (talk) 15:08, 2 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
