Intermediate-Term Memory as a Bridge between Working and Long-Term Memory

In this latent state, memories are by definition not actively maintained—a fundamental characteristic of working memory—because they are out of the attentional focus. Neither are these memories permanently hardwired within the neuronal network. Rather, these memories represent a stage between working memory and long-term memory, a stage that molecular neurobiologists refer to as intermediate-term memory.
