Concurrent overlap

In memory research, concurrent overlap, or task appropriate processing, is a type of processing overlap between an activity engaged in before the prospective memory is to-be-remembered and a cue that directs attention towards the prospective memory [1]. It is prospective memory specific and is distinct from sequential overlap, or transfer appropriate processing, which occurs in both retrospective and prospective memory and is defined as the overlap in processing the to-be-remembered memory between planning (or study in retrospective memory) and test times.
