Memory & Attention

"There is no new learning without some form of memory and some form of attention," Dr. Tracey Tokuhama-Espinosa (2018)

Working Memory

"Working memory refers to the system or systems that are assumed to be necessary in order to keep things in mind while performing complex tasks such as reasoning, comprehension and learning" (Baddeley, 2010)

Short term memory "reflects faculties of the human mind that can hold a limited amount of information in a very accessible state temporarily" 

(Cowan, 2008)

Short-term  Memory

Long-term memory has a larger capacity than short-term memory (Cowan, 2008) 

"..neuroimaging studies of short-term or working memory tasks also tend to activate areas associated with long-term memory" (Baddeley, 2010)
