LOPEZ, Magdalena. Working memory and learning: contributions of neuropsychology. Cuad. neuropsicol. [online]. 2011, vol.5, n.1, pp. 25-47. ISSN 0718-4123.

Currently working memory is a concept that has achieved scientific consensus to conceive it as a brain system that provides temporary storage and manipulation of necessary information for complex cognitive tasks as language comprehension, learning and reasoning (Gathercole, Alloway, Willis & Adam, 2006; Baddeley, 1986; Just & Carpenter, 1992). The technological and scientific advance in neuropsychology has enabled many contributions, discoveries that enable the knowledge and experience integration from different disciplinary fields. The study of the functional organization of working memory, with the advent of neuroimaging techniques has made it possible to understand the complex web of connections and relationships it has. We propose a review of the evolution of the concept of working memory to better understand a system that is credited with significant impact on learning.
