Working memory: does the brain have RAM memory?

Working memory is a cognitive process with a limited capacity that is responsible for temporarily retaining information available for processing.

The closest thing to working memory is RAM, the memory in your computer or cell phone that becomes saturated when there are many programs open (and also uses more battery).

In this episode we tell you what allows us to do working memory:

  • Temporarily hold information for step-by-step use.
  • Manipulate data to solve problems.
  • Be aware of the passage of time (what happened and what will happen).

ADHD/ADHD: Is It Just Attention Deficit?

It is very frequent that among health agents and educators, and therefore the idea that ADHD/ADHD is simply attention deficit and therefore, people are medicated because they have difficulty paying attention.

ADHD is a failure of self-regulation of behavior in general.

The essential problem would be the inhibition or brake deficit and therefore, inattention, or attention regulation deficit, is one failure among many. This means that, in order to concentrate on a task, it is previously necessary to slow down to evaluate what our goal is and then regulate what, when, where, for what, how much and how we are going to pay attention.

In this episode we tell you why ADHD/ADHD is not equivalent to attention deficit, but rather something else: it is inhibition and self-regulation deficit. es déficit de inhibición y autorregulación.

In this episode we review each of them in detail:

  • Work memory. 
  • Emotional regulation.
  • Problem solving.

The person with the disorder can be motivated and concentrate very well on some tasks, but not on others. 

At first glance it seems as if this is a simple lack of "willpower". 

In this episode we tell you why it is not a matter of willpower and how motivation is related to executive functions.
