The role of verbal working memory is the temporary storing and updating of 'speech-like' information, in which capacity there are huge individual differences modulating a series of cognitive operations. A number of diagnostic tools have been developed for assessing the capacity of verbal working memory. Unfortunately, these diagnostic tools have not been translated and adapted to Hungarian. As the storing and updating components of verbal working memory are very sensitive to the length of the to-be-remembered information, to the average utterance time and to the phonological structure of the presented items, the materials that are available in the literature mainly in English can only be of limited use for research in the Hungarian language. Our research group produced the Hungarian versions of the three most widely used verbal working memory tasks: digit span task, nonword repetition task and reading span task. We present the three Hungarian working memory task materials and their normative data for the first time.
