Attention and Intelligence : The Frontal Cortex In both humans and mice, the efficacy of working memory capacity and its related process, selective attention, are each strongly predictive of individuals’ aggregate performance in cognitive test batteries. Because working memory is taxed during most cognitive tasks, the efficacy of working memory may have a causal influence on individuals’ performance on tests of “intelligence”. Despite the attention this has received, supporting evidence has been largely correlational in nature. Here, genetically heterogeneous mice were assessed on a battery of five learning tasks. Animals’ aggregate performance across the tasks was used to estimate their general cognitive abilities, a trait that is in some respects analogous to intelligence. Working memory training promoted an increase in animals’ selective attention and their aggregate performance on these tasks.
