Working Memory Definition
Working memory is the capacity to hold small amounts of information in an active, easily accessible state, usually for less than 30 seconds at a time. Examples include keeping a new phone number in working memory long enough to dial the number, and keeping a new, important meeting date & time in your active memory long enough to write it down.
