comment How can I create computer based psychology experiments using OS X?
Thanks for your comments. You're right, John, running Windows on your Mac is a possiblity. However, this way you have no access to your Mac applications while developing in Windows. I wanted to avoid the hassle of having to constantly reboot my machine when switching tasks.

comment How to reliably measure working memory capacity?
From what I've learned 7±2 is not considered to be a valid estimate of the mean working memory capacity anymore. There is also a question related to this issue on here cogsci. But this is besides the point. I know there are different concepts as to what working memory is. Some scientists even doubt the concept of seperate short- and long-term memories. However, as you have stated, working memory capacity is being measured in cognitive science and I'd be interested in standardized tests and their reliability.
