Our working memory is a significant component of learning new information. Working memory is complex as it encompasses many areas of the brain. It is oftentimes considered a central executive, a phonological loop, a visuospatial sketchpad, and an episodic buffer (Willis & Mitchell, 2014).
Discuss the process of working memory including the areas of the brain associated with short-term memory and encoding. Then explain two techniques you can use in your professional practice that would help improve and strengthen short-term memory. In addition to the Willis and Mitchell (2014) textbook, Chapter 9 of the Wolfe (2010) book may also be useful. As indicated in the recommended resources for this week, the Wolfe text is available from Ebook Central in the Ashford Library. Get Social Science help today
