#51: The science behind ADHD Memory Challenges | Guest Jeff Copper

#51: The science behind ADHD Memory Challenges  | Guest Jeff Copper

On today’s episode, we’re joined by special guest, ADHD, and Attention coach, also the host of Attention Talk Radio, Jeff Copper. We’re discussing memory, and specifically working memory: the ability to hold thoughts in your mind, organize them, and sequence them, without forgetting them.

This topic is hugely important for people with ADHD, but it’s not always talked about.

We’ll explore:

  • Why focus and attention issues are only surface symptoms, and the real issue is with working memory
  • How working memory works differently in neurotypical and neurodivergent people
  • What role procrastination plays in how we work, and why it might just be a good thing
  • Why high-tech solutions and apps can be counterproductive for people with ADHD
  • The different types of cues and reminders we use, and why they’re so critical for us
  • How impulsive interrupting relates to working memory (and what to do about it!)
  • How activating your working memory is like booting up a computer...and what happens when the power goes out
  • Why the pandemic and our new, more isolated work environments have made working so much harder for ADHD-ers

...and much more. I’m so excited about this particular episode, and I personally find it liberating because Jeff shares important insights that can help us tear off the misleading labels, understand the neuroscience, and finally do something about it. I invite you to listen and discover the role working memory plays in your life!
