Abstract: A lot of researches had explored the specialities of the objects working memory from the angles of behavior and cognitive neuroscience psychology. At the behavior level, reviewing the paradigm used in the research on storage formation, capacity, feature binding and retention in visual working memory, three theoretical hypotheses (viz. strong-object hypothesis feature and binding with the same storage mechanism hypothesis and dual-storage mechanism hypothesis) were introduced. At the cognitive neuroscience psychology level, reviewing the function of temporal, parietal and occipital in the visual working memory, discovering the important role of Prefrontal and parietal lobe in the feature binding. Issues for further research were discussed and suggestions were also made.

Key words: visual working memory, objects, memory capacity, motion direction, neuroscience
