    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of cell phone noise on memory retention in classroom environment. A second purpose of the study was to determine which theory – unitary account or duplex-mechanism account – would best explain the effect of cell phone noise on cognitive mechanisms. The method required the participants to watch a short documentary and afterwards complete a memory test, consisting of gist questions. The experiment group was simultaneously being exposed to ringtones and text message signals of a cell phone during four episodes of the documentary, whereas the control group was not exposed to noise. The participants’ memory retention of the content of those four episodes was tested via so called test items. 27 participants participated in the experiment, where 11 of them were in the control group and the rest in the experiment group. The results failed to find an effect of cell phone noise on participants’ memory retention. The results support the duplex-mechanism account, which means that the unitary account is not supported in the present study. However, methodological flaws and the small sample complicate the interpretation of the results. Recommendations for future research involve methodological improvements and research areas.
