Invited Symposium

≪Organizer Abstract≫
Working memory is defined as a system that supports short-term retention of information to complete a task one is currently engaged in. Since the dawn of working memory research, studies have focused on the roles of working memory in ongoing processing tasks, but this role is still under the scrutiny. This symposium aims to facilitate further empirical examination of this aspect of working memory functioning on the basis of recent theoretical developments in this area - that is, the proposal of a concept of procedural working memory, which is assumed to underpin the maintenance of a task set, more specifically, of information regarding how to process the retained memory items. The outcomes from this symposium will advance our knowledge about working memory and its related cognitive mechanisms.
