What is working memory?

Andrew Huberman AI:

Working memory is the ability to maintain small batches of information in your mind for relatively short periods of time. It is a crucial aspect of many tasks we do throughout the day, such as remembering a phone number or navigating through a city. Working memory is very subject to interference from other tasks that we happen to be doing, like looking at our phone or having a conversation. Tyrosine has been shown to improve working memory, especially in the context of multitasking and having a lot of conflicting goals.
