In this chapter the authors provide a brief overview of different aspects of working memory from a developmental perspective. They start with a description of the development of working memory and/or preceding constructs. Subsequently, they turn to some (but by far not all) theoretical perspectives on working memory in developmental psychology. According to the extent to which these approaches relate to the structural account proposed by Baddeley, the authors have roughly grouped the approaches into Baddeley-bound and non Baddeley-bound models. This presentation of models is followed by a short distinction of working memory and short-term memory. Finally, the authors switch to a broader perspective describing working memory in the course of the lifespan, presenting state-of-the-art results considering mainly structure and capacity.
