Working memory, executive function, and general fluid intelligence are not the same

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 29 (2):135-136 (2006)
Abstract
Blair equates the constructs of working memory (WM), executive function, and general fluid intelligence (gF). We argue that there is good reason not to equate these constructs. We view WM and gF as separable but highly related, and suggest that the mechanism behind the relationship is controlled attention – an ability that is dependent on normal functioning of the prefrontal cortex.
