Working memory has been one of the most intensively studied systems in cognitive psychology. It is only relatively recently however that researchers have been able to study the neural processes might underlie working memory, leading to a proliferation of research in this domain. The Cognitive Neuroscience of Working Memory brings together leading researchers from around the world to summarize current knowledge of this field, and directions for future research. An historical opening chapter by Alan Baddeley and Graham Hitch sets the context for the subsequent chapters. The scope of the book is exceptionally broad, providing a showcase for cutting edge research on all contemporary concepts of working memory, using techniques from experimental psychology, single cell recording, neuropsychology, cognitive neuroimaging and computational modelling. The Cognitive Neuroscience of Working Memory will be an important reference text for all those seeking an authoritative and comprehensive synthesis of this field.
