Working Memory


Working memory is one of the brain’s executive functions. It’s a skill that allows us to work with information without losing track of what we’re doing.   Working memory is like a temporary post-it note in the brain. It holds new information in place so the brain can work with it briefly and connect it with other information (Rosen, n.d.).   Remembering a phone number, recalling directions, or writing an essay are all tasks that use working memory.
