In a delayed treble alternation task the number of errors made by human subjects was found to increase when an irrelevant task was presented in the delay interval. The number of errors increased with the number of items presented in the delay interval, but neither the difficulty of the irrelevant task nor its similarity to the alternation task was found to affect the number of errors.
