≪Organizer Abstract≫
Working memory is in charge of the storage and processing of information at short term. As a consequence, it is involved in all cognitive activities and conceived as the hub of human cognition. Although studied for decades, many questions are still pending about its functioning and more especially about its development. Although changes in working memory capacity throughout childhood is considered as playing a major role in cognitive development since the neo-Piagetian revolution, the factors underpinning these changes remain largely unknown. The aim of its symposium is to shed light on this question through the presentation of up-to-date research on working memory by world leaders in this field.
