working memory

Working memory contains the information of which you are immediately aware. Information being “put into” memory is held in working memory; memories being remembered are held in working memory. The capacity of working memory — how much information it can hold at one time — is severely limited. Working memory governs your ability to comprehend what you are reading or hearing, your ability to learn new words, your ability to plan and organize yourself, and much more.
