Working memory and its relationship with other memories



Working memory is a theoretical framework within cognitive psychology that refers to the structures and processes used for temporary storage and manipulation of information. The multicomponent model of working memory is one of the most studied models in research laboratories around the world.

The objective of this meeting is to congregate Brazilian researchers that have been conducting studies into working memory. The meeting will be held at the Universidade Federal de São Paulo, on the 17th and 18th of September of 2007.

Alan Baddeley, one of the authors of the multicomponent model, will give both the opening and closing lectures!


The official language of the meeting will be English, with no simultaneous translation available.
