Improving Verbal Working Memory though Visuospatial Stimulation with Future Theoretical Implication in Down's Syndrome

Abstract: Working memory is made up of three components, the central executive, the phonological loop, the visuo - spatial scratch - pad. Working memory can be strengthened by working on any of these individually or in coherence. This longitudinal study was conducted to access the impact of visuospatial stimulation through the use of jigsaw puzzle on verbal working memory as reflected by digit span.32 adults with minimum ability to recognise numbers, cleaved in two groups, 20 - 25 years as young adults in group I and above 60 years older adults in group II. Digit forward span and backward span was examined pre and post visuo - spatial stimulation in each group, and the results revealed that practice of visuo - spatial stimulation has improvement in verbal working memory. There was significant difference between pre - evaluation and post evaluation after some amount of visuo - spatial stimulation practice in digit forward and backward verbal working memory span in both groups. As people with Downs syndrome have a specific impairment in short - term memory for verbal information the study propose that this domain can be improved by working on the visuo - spatial domain which is already a stronger suit for people with Downs syndrome.
