Deficits in working memory can affect an individual's ability to focus attention, control impulses and solve problems. Impairments of working memory are found in a wide range of individuals who experience attention deficits, such as children and adults with ADD or ADHD, persons with learning disabilities and victims of stroke or traumatic brain injury.
