Cognitive Psychology on Working Memory - Dictionary of Arguments

Corr I 405
Working Memory/cognitive psychology/Matthews: Working memory theory posits a capacity-limited supervisory executive system that directs both short-term storage and voluntary attention. It is localized in the prefrontal cortex, the anterior part of the frontal lobes of the brain (Kane and Engle 2002)(1).
Problems: advances in understanding executive functioning may help to clarify some of the ambiguities of resource theory (Eysenck, Derakshan, Santos and Calvo 2007(2)).
