New Insights From Working Memory Research

Abstract

Until recently, researchers treated the working memory system as relatively encapsulated. In contrast, emerging views highlight the way working memory tasks engage traditional memory systems, how individual and age differences in use of these systems impact higher-order cognition, and the implications of working memory research for reconceptualizing traditional memory constructs.
