Short-term memory and attention

Short-term memory and attention

About This Video

In this third and final video segment, Dr. Edward Awh from the University of Oregon explains his view of the interrelationship between Attention and working memory. He proposes that attention is one of the central mechanisms underlying working memory functioning and that attention plays a larger role in our understanding of working memory than previously thought. The interview is again conducted by Susan Wahlberg, an undergraduate student of psychology at the University of Oregon.
