≪Organizer Abstract≫
Working memory refers to a system involved in the temporary storage and processing of information to support goal oriented behavior based on higher cognitive brain function. In the current symposium, current trends in verbal and working memory research will be overviewed along with its future directions. Behavioral and neural correlates of both type of working memory network models are discussed from the view of attention controlling system supported by frontal brain regions (dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and anterior cingulate cortex) and posterior parietal regions (superior- and inferior-parietal lobules and intraparietal sulcus) with respect to individual differences in working memory capacity. Differences between young adults and elderly, between task preparation and default mode network are also discussed.
