Working memory as a mental workspace: Why activated long-term memory is not enough

  • Robert H. Logie (a1) and Sergio Della Sala (a1)
Abstract

Working-memory retention as activated long-term memory fails to capture orchestrated processing and storage, the hallmark of the concept of working memory. The event-related potential (ERP) data are compatible with working memory as a mental workspace that holds and manipulates information on line, which is distinct from long-term memory, and deals with the products of activated traces from stored knowledge.
