Working memory and self-regulation

This chapter introduces contemporary views surrounding the multi-component-view of working memory and focuses on the central executive as the component that is assumed to orchestrate perceptual, cognitive, and motor processes in the service of goal pursuit.

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)

The Functional Organization and Capacity Limits of Working Memory

It is argued that the multiple-component perspective and the single-attentional-system perspective are complementary, with each best suited to asking different research questions, and that many areas of contemporary debate regarding the nature of working memory reflect differences that are more apparent than real.

Semantic memory is located in parahippocampal gyrus and its function would be world facts remembering and short-term/working memory would be information retention for ongoing behavior guidance.

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 information

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.

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 model

Translating words into actions in working memory: The role of spatial-motoric coding

Research from a working memory perspective on the encoding and temporary maintenance of sequential instructions has established a consistent advantage for enacted over verbal recall. This is thought
