About Working Memory is a web site that provides information and resources about working memory, just like its title suggests. The term “working memory” refers to our ability to hold information in memory temporarily (for a few seconds) while we are solving a problem or performing a task. The site has a challenge that allows you to test your working memory capacity. You do two exercises with progressively increasing levels of difficulty. The first exercise tests your ability to remember visual patterns. The second exercise focuses on the auditory information. Once you are done, you can compare your score with other people’s scores on similar working memory exercises. Are you ready to push your working memory to the limits?
