Researchers have theorized that while all information is at least recognized by the cognitive processes, only that information which is deemed relevant makes its way to working memory. (Wood 257) This explanation makes sense in both the context of dichotic listening source differentiation as well as the cocktail party effect. During a dichotic listening task, participants cannot remember information that they were not asked to focus on because it is effectively “dumped out” before it can be stored in working memory due to its irrelevance.
