Working memory has been one of the most intensively studied systems in cognitive psychology. It is only relatively recently however that researchers have been able to study the neural processes might underlie working memory, leading to a proliferation of research in this domain. The Cognitive Neuroscience of Working Memory brings together leading researchers from around the world to summarize current knowledge of this field, and directions for future research. An historical opening chapter by Alan Baddeley and Graham Hitch sets the context for the subsequent chapters. The scope of the book is exceptionally broad, providing a showcase for cutting edge research on all contemporary concepts of working memory, using techniques from experimental psychology, single cell recording, neuropsychology, cognitive neuroimaging and computational modelling. The Cognitive Neuroscience of Working Memory will be an important reference text for all those seeking an authoritative and comprehensive synthesis of this field.
Working memory capacity, control, components, and theory: an editorial overview ; 1. Working memory: past, present... and future? ; 2. What do working memory span tasks like reading span really measure? ; 3. What do estimates of working memory capacity tell us? ; 4. The time-based resource-sharing model of working memory ; 5. The ins and outs of working memory: dynamic processes associated with focus switching and search ; 6. Neural bases of focusing attention in working memory: an fMRI study based on individual differences ; 7. Separating processing from storage in working memory operation span ; 8. The interpretation of temporal isolation effects ; 9. Working memory and short-term memory storage: what does backward recall tell us? ; 10. Accounting for age-related differences in working memory using the feature model ; 11. Implications from cognitive neuropsychology for models of short-term and working memory ; 12. Top-down modulation in visual working memory ; 13. General-purpose working memory system and functions of the dorsolateral preforontal cortex ; 14. Visuo-spatial rehearsal processes in working memory ; 15. Towards a multicomponent view of executive control: the case of response selection ; 16. Relational processing is fundamental to the central executive and it is limited to four variables ; 17. A neural efficiency hypothesis of age-related changes in human working memory performance ; 18. Intersecting the divide between working memory and episodic memory: evidence from sustained and transient brain activity patterns ; 19. 'Activated long-term memory'? The bases of representation in working memory ; 20. Activation, binding and selective access - an embedded three-component framework for working memory ; 21. A hierarchical biased-competition model of domain-dependent working memory mainatenance and executive control
The authors have done an outstanding job of bringing together a series of interesting chapters on WM. This book should be required reading for anyone interested in the current state of the field. * ScienceDirect *
