Working memory is the search engine of the brain
Working memory is the ability to keep information in your mind for a short time, focus on a task, and remember what to do next. We use our working memory constantly in our daily life—helping us to perform efficiently and effectively in academic, professional and social settings. It is critical for focusing, appropriately shutting out distractions, and for complex thinking.
