This chapter reviews positron emission tomography (PET), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and event-related potential (ERP) studies of episodic memory retrieval, working memory and of executive control, and concludes that working memory may comprise a range of control functions linked with the operation of the prefrontal cortex that serve to retrieve information from long-term memory in more posterior areas and to maintain the information in an active state. This views the memory components of working memory as comprising the currently activated areas of long-term memory rather than a quite distinct temporary memory system.

Keywords:   working memory, episodic memory, functional magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission tomography, prefrontal cortex
