Where Can I Learn More about Working Memory?
I am now offering recorded workshops to my audience. To view my recent workshop on working memory CLICK HERE or on the image. If you would like to learn about my other workshops and courses, CLICK HERE.
What Makes Up Working Memory?
- Sensory Memory enables one to briefly retain the environmental information that enters cognition through our senses.
- Short-Term Memory then holds a small amount of information in an active, usable state.
- Central Executive, at the same time, directs attention and allocates priority to the two following processing activities:
- Visual-Spatial Sketchpad visualizes input in an internal visual and spatial form and then sends and receives information to and from the long-term memory.
- Phonological Loop manages, processes, repeats (as an inner voice) written and auditory material and also communicates with the long term memory.
- Episodic Buffer acts as a stage and storage device that shares information with the long-term memory, the visual-spatial sketchpad, and the phonological loop.
- Long-Term Memory is responsible for the storage of memories for an extended time.
Why Should Working Memory Be Tested?
How Can I Test My Working Memory?
You can evaluate working memory as well as other areas of executive functions with the digital and affordable Executive Functioning Competency Screener. It offers a comprehensive report with remedial suggestions, a user dashboard with group analytics as well as handouts and training materials.
Do You Offer any Other Tests or Screeners?
Where Can I Find Remedial Materials to Strengthen Working Memory?
