What is working memory?

Working memory is like our mental jotting pad for mental workings. It is a temporary storage centre for information that is required for tasks such as: 

  • Remembering a new telephone number, web address or PIN number for long enough to write it down
  • Calculating how much change you’re owed at the supermarket checkout

We have limited space available in our working memory and it can become overburdened if we try to hold too much information in there at one time. Keeping information in working memory requires attention and focus. 

Working memory peaks in our twenties, and tends to decline gradually thereafter. Distraction/ poor focus, advancing age, and trying to work with too much information at once can all have a negative impact
