Quiz: Adults, Could You Have an Executive Function Problem?

Working memory, a critical executive functioning skill, is where you store the information you need to complete a task. If you are reading a story, for example, you will store information about what you have read here. As you continue to read, your working memory helps you recall what already happened and relate it to what you are reading now. Working memory is essential in learning and everyday tasks.
