Long-term and working memory: How do they interact?

ByALAN BADDELEY

I have known Lars-Göran Nilsson since we met at an Attention and Performance meeting in Stockholm many years ago. As a local, he proved a knowledgeable guide to the colourful nightlife that characterized Stockholm at the time. We have been friends ever since, and I was delighted to be invited to participate in his Festschrift. Despite being friends, we have never collaborated, my own principal interest being in working memory and Lars-Göran’s in long-term memory. It seemed appropriate, therefore, that my contribution to this tribute should concern the interaction between long-term and working memory.
