Working memory and language comprehension: A meta-analysis
The results of the meta-analysis support Daneman and Carpenter’s (1980) claim that measures thatTap the combined processing and storage capacity of working memory are better predictors of comprehension than are measures that tap only the storage capacity.
Individual differences in children's memory and reading comprehension: An investigation of semantic and inhibitory deficits
It is suggested that individual differences in inhibitory processing influence the ability to regulate the contents of working memory, which may contribute to the differential memory performance of good and poor comprehenders.
Individual differences in working memory and reading
Reading Comprehension Difficulties
In this chapter we consider the nature and the source of difficulties experienced by children with a specific type of comprehension deficit, children who have developed age-appropriate word reading
Working memory, comprehension ability and the resolution of text anomaly.
The results support the hypothesis that text processing is influenced by working memory demands and suggest that children's comprehension is related to the efficiency of a general non-linguistic working memory system.
Memory updating in working memory : the role of the central executive
It is concluded that the updating of working memory in real time is coordinated by a central executive component of the model.
Working memory and updating processes in reading comprehension
The data show that working memory abilities, based on selecting and updating relevant information and avoiding intrusion errors, are related to reading comprehension.
What Happens to Information to be Suppressed in Working–Memory Tasks? Short and Long Term Effects
It was concluded that efficient working–memory performance is related to the temporary reduction of activation of irrelevant information but does not imply its elimination from memory.
Profiles of children with specific reading comprehension difficulties.
Findings indicate that a single underlying source of poor comprehension is unlikely and poor comprehenders are at risk of generally poor educational attainment, although weak verbal or cognitive skills appear to affect the reading development of poor comprehender in different ways.
