Abstract

Working memory has been described as a cognitive system that permits interaction between attention, perception, and memory (Baddeley, 1992). Working memory forms the cornerstone in the effort to accomplish real-world goals. The aim and objective of the study were to correlate the working memory performance of young aged healthy adults on conventional working memory tasks with variant everyday working memory task. The study was done on 15 young healthy adults. The tasks consisted of conventional digit backward and letter ordering tasks along with six variant tasks. The tasks were presented visually beginning with simple 2 steps ordering to increasing complexity up to 6-7 steps. The correlation analysis results revealed that there was significant correlation seen between the conventional working memory tasks with most of the variant everyday working memory task. The present study highlights the importance of not restricting to conventional digit backward span and ordering tasks to assess the complete capacity of one’s variant everyday working memory.
