Mental Workload

In cognitive psychology, cognitive load is the load related to the executive control of working memory (WM). Theories contend that during complex learning activities the amount of information and interactions that must be processed simultaneously can either underload or overload the finite amount of working memory one possesses. All elements must be processed before meaningful learning can continue.Instruction may be aimed at teaching learners either problem solving skills or thinking and reasoning skills (including perception, memory, language, etc.).
