Abstract  

People tend to classify and store the cognitive objects according to different standards or rules, namely, category learning. As the basis of various cognitive processing, the working memory has an important effect on the category learning. Based on the existing researches, this paper combs the influence of the working memory on the implicit and explicit learning from three aspects of the executive function, visual processing and working memory capacity. At present, there are controversies about whether the executive function affects the implicit and explicit learning system and whether the working memory capacity has the consistent influence on the implicit and explicit learning system. What’s more, whether the working memory influences the cognitive processing stage of the category learning is unclear. Therefore, the next stage needs to make clear the influence of its executive function on the implicit and explicit learning and further tests the reasonability of the influence of the working learning on the cognitive and processing model of the category learning.
