What is Working Memory?

Working memory is a fundamental cognitive function that plays a crucial role in our daily lives. It allows us to temporarily store and manipulate information, which is essential for tasks like problem-solving, decision-making, and learning. A strong working memory can significantly improve your overall cognitive abilities. Without recalling words, names, locations, directions, we would wonder alone and lost without the ability to communicate.
