This aspect takes us back to the problem of assessing the degree of task difficulty. The degree of automation is not only linked to the requirements and constraints inherent in the task itself but also to inter- and intra-individual variations.

He demonstrated also (Tipper, 1991) the attenuation of these inhibitory mechanisms with age, an observation which helps to account for certain cognitive difficulties in older people which, finally, would be the consequence of a degradation of specific mechanisms of selective attention. All of these observations confirm the dynamic aspects of attentional process and the importance not only of the spatial disposition between targets and distractors but also of relationships (morphological and semantic) that they have between themselves, as well as their frequency and chronology of presentation.

He observed that the calculation task had no impact on the tracking quality. These observations support the idea of the existence of independent resources pools underlying each specific task. 9 Multiple resources model proposed by Wickens (1984b) • the encoding mode (visual vs. auditory) • the encoding type (spatial vs. verbal) • the different stages of processing (encoding, central and output elaboration) • the type of response (manual vs. vocal). This model was rapidly criticized for its few possibilities in practical applications.
