Working memory and self-regulation
The purpose of this chapter is to apply insights from cognitive psychology on working memory to everyday self-regulation. We will first introduce contemporary views surrounding theExpand
The accessibility of memory items in children's working memory
This thesis investigates the processes and systems that support recall in working memory. In particular it seeks to apply ideas from the adult-based dual-memory framework (Unsworth & Engle, 2007b)Expand
The Functional Organization and Capacity Limits of Working Memory
Working memory refers to keeping track of ongoing mental processes and temporary memory. One hypothesis is that this form of memory consists of multiple domain-specific components. Over four decades,Expand
Working Memory and Executive Attention: Insights from Developmental Studies and Implications for Learning and Education
Working memory and executive attention enhance the processing of relevant information for goal-directed behavior. Working memory is generally defined as the ability to hold and manipulate informationExpand
Working Memory in Aphasia: Considering Discourse Processing and Treatment Implications
This article reviews discourse level deficits associated with aphasia, describes how a deficit at the level of the episodic buffer could cause such deficits, and presents preliminary results from a novel discourse treatment study for PWAs. Expand
Limitations of working memory capacity: The cognitive and social consequences
Abstract This paper aimed to explore, from the perspective of cognitive psychology, the natural limitations of human cognition that determine our capabilities to deal with information overflow. TheseExpand
The relation between a multicomponent working memory and intelligence: The roles of central executive and short-term storage functions.
Abstract This study examined the relationship among multifaceted functions of working memory, namely central executive functions (shifting, inhibition and updating) and short-term storage componentsExpand
Examining the role of working memory resources in following spoken instructions
ABSTRACT This study investigated the involvement of working memory (WM) in following spoken instructions using concurrent tasks designed to disrupt components of the Baddeley and Hitch WM modelExpand
Psychological and Neural Functions of Working Memory in Social Contexts
In everyday life, we need to temporally maintain and manipulate various pieces of information in our mind to achieve social and interpersonal goals. Such a temporal memory system that supportsExpand
Working Memory and the Hippocampus
Test the generality of this proposal across tasks using a battery designed to investigate the various components of working memory, studying the working memory performance of Jon, who shows a bilateral reduction in hippocampal volume compared to a group of 48 college students. Expand
