PhD as a stage
What chunks are there?
Mind is like a theatre: only 4 ACTORS can fit at a time
STAGE LIGHTING is restricted it can only concentrate on one actor act at a time
Audience (maps of info in long-term memory)
Actors (objects, tasks, information) consciously aware of NOW!
STAGE DIRECTORS: need to inhibit actors
DIRECTOR: gets tired during the day
Backstage actors are distractions
Each time you make a decision ACTORS line up for a lead role
stage = prefrontal cortex
