The results extend the developmental memory literature by implicating the mechanism of memory updating and developmental improvement in speed of attention focus switching and updating as critical contributors to children’s verbal working memory.Theoretically, the results provide substantively new information about the role of domain-general executive attention in children’s verbal working memory.This can happen to anyone, and it's no cause for worry.Updating should be assessed and monitored, however, if significant errors are made without realizing it.Memories do not persist in a permanent, static state but instead must be dynamically modified in response to new information.
Cogni Fit has a battery of clinical exercises designed to help recover updating and other cognitive deficits.
The cognitive stimulation and assessments from Cogni Fit are available online and on mobile.
There are a number of interactive activities and games that can help train and improve skills.
Problems with updating may make many other daily activities more difficult to complete.
Updating can be altered by a large number of disorders, the most common being Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).Jennifer Czerniawski, and Terra White for their technical support in conducting the cat FISH experiments.
