Working memory is a basic mental skill. It’s important for both learning and doing many everyday tasks. Working memory allows the brain to briefly hold new information while it’s needed in the short term.

The moderately and mildly retarded with no apparent organic or medical involvement are known to do poorly on short term memory tasks (Ellis, ). They are also known to perform slower memory scans than normals of the same age (Harris and Fleer, ; Dugas and Kellas, ), at least for alphanumeric stimuli.

In short-term memory tasks, participants are given a set of items (e.g. letters, digits) one at a time and then, after varying periods of delay, are asked for recall of the items. This experiment demonstrates some of the limitations of short-term memory.

The George Miller theory that we could remember seven (plus or minus) two items has been thrown into doubt by modern research which suggests that our short-term memory store depends on a number of factors.
