ABSTRACT
Emotional working memory training is a new area of research. In this study, we review a series of recent works describing a range of emotional working memory interventions that go from training single affective working memory function to teaching emotion regulation strategies. Generally speaking, research to date has established that emotional working memory may be preserved in Alzheimer's disease. However, much work remains to be done in clarifying what aspects of affective domain is preserved, and testing short- and long-term effects of the trainings as well as their generalization to everyday affective functioning. We conclude by offering suggestions about the development of emotional working memory training for Alzheimer's patients.
