Training working memory in older people: the role

of age and individual differences

In this presentation I will discuss the efficacy of working memory _-WM- training procedures for typically-aging older adults. I will focus on illustrating a procedure that  appears to produce both near and far transfer effects – even in abilities needed in everyday tasks, such as reading comprehension and everyday problem solving – in different populations (young-old, old-old). I will then comment on the role of individual characteristics (such as age and baseline WM performance) and other crucial variables (i.e. the nature of the task) in predicting specific gains and transfer effects in the short and long term.
