Working & Reference Memory

Short-term & Long-term Memory?

Working Memory: Memory for things on which you still have to act.

Reference Memory: Memory for unchanging things that you will recall for the future.

Ways of studying working memory:

  • Delayed (non)matching to sample
  • Radial arm maze
  • Alternation
