The Centre for Working Memory and Learning is based at the University of York. Our research focuses on:
the cognitive processes involved in memory and learning
how the brain supports working memory and learning
memory and learning during childhood
memory and learning in individuals with learning difficulties and in individuals with brain damage
how theory can be applied to help individuals with memory and learning difficulties in practical situations including the classroom.
The core staff of the centre are Professor Alan Baddeley, Professor Graham Hitch, Professor Susan Gathercole, Dr Tom Hartley and Dr Elizabeth Jefferies. The centre also houses postdoctoral researchers, research assistants, and PhD students working on associated projects.
