DescriptionData from a dual task working memory (WM) paradigm. Participants remembered either 1 or 2 faces or houses (WM load), then performed a series of visual searches wherein targets were either more or less discriminable from distractors (search difficulty). All data are from the 8 sec visual search epoch, during the WM delay interval. T-maps reflect univariate contrasts, whereas searchlight maps reflect multivariate classification of the WM category (face vs. house) during the visual search task.
