Abstract  

Using running working memory task combined with ERPs techniques and adopted different populations to investigate the plasticity of working memory updating function. It found that working memory updating ability has plasticity. In details, individuals’ working memory updating task scores could increase through updating training. The results suggested that training firstly enhanced participants’ recognition ability at the perceptual stage and then strengthened their capacity to inhibit irrelevant information and attended to the current target stimuli, which in turn improved the updating ability in working memory representation. Through working memory updating training, individuals’ could improve its cognitive functions, but compared to which that in the recession stage of working memory ability, this kind of transfer effect could be more apparent on individuals’ in the development stage of working memory ability.
