PROFESSSOR SUE GARTHERCOLE - LEARNUS LECTURE 

         The of the usual lecture her "Diagnosis  what Diagnosis". Sue Gathercole who is in the Cambridge Institute of the brain refers to the latest research on cognition and working memory. The Institute specialise on children with learning difficulties. It is sponsored by the the health service.         

         In her excellent lecture Sue Garthercole refers the fact is no evidence working memory capacity can be changed and that there is no magic bullet solution to resolving difficulties that the 33% of children are retarded learning potential.

           The Videos Explain Working Memory Problems

             These videos are extremely interesting.

         They assert that there are three dimensions to working memory. Processing capacity, which can be worked out by calculating digit span, how many numbers the brain can hold. Processing speed can be worked out by naming the colours of circle as quickly as possible. Complex span uses digit span injected with fast naming of colours i.e. hold a number and then name a colour.


     They refer to three reasons for working memory problems arising. It arises because of low memory capacity, slow processing speed and distractions.  They suggest that the ability to read relates to memorisation problems, while processing quickly, effectively relates to classroom behaviour.


V2.  Children may have specific visual memory problems. These children's can become frustrated. Children can have limited verbal spans.


V3. Slower processers remember less because they are unlikely get distractions out of the way. Verbal distraction have a strong effect on people.


V4. Rhythm supports memory
