By utilizing the contents of various memory storage systems, working memory enables individuals to learn and to string together thoughts and ideas. For more details on working memory, see Dehn (2008). Verbal Working Memory Verbal working memory consists of complex working memory operations in which analysis, manipulation, and transformation of verbal material takes place. One of the primary functions of verbal working memory is to extract a meaningful representation that corresponds to the phonological information taken in by phonological short-term memory.

Because retrieval depends heavily on cues, a cue that is available during retrieval will aide recall to the extent that it was encoded along with the learned material (Koriat, 2000). Thus, a retrieval cue will be effective if the cue was incorporated during the original encoding. ’’ Essentially, the encoding specificity principle means that successful recall is a function of the similarity between encoded information and the information provided at retrieval (Hannon & Craik, 2001). The retrieval cues can be derived from the context or situation, as well as the meaning and structure of the interrogatives.

As described by Baddeley (1986, 1996), the central executive, which does not itself have storage capacity, draws on the overall limited capacity of short-term and working memory. Despite its important role, the functioning of the central executive is the least understood component of working memory. The lack of a clear construct is due to measurement challenges and to its multiple functions (Richardson, 1996). Nevertheless, there is a consensus among theorists that general executive processing plays a central role in working memory.
