There is a computer based memory task called "dual n-back" that has been found to improve working memory. Several studies have been published showning that test subjects improved their working memory after doing the task for 25min a day for a few weeks. For more info see here and download the free program http://brainworkshop.sourceforge.net/

This is actually old news but I was surprised to find no reference to this on this forum, especially when this game could have potentially big benefits for people with short term memory problems, like many on the autism spectrum.

I will be doing this task for the next few weeks and report back on my improvements, if any. Right now I'm struggling with "3-back" and in particular the auditory aspect.

Procrastination got the better of me. I will try again.
