Our previous study successfully improved short term memory by individual alpha neurofeedback training. However, short term memory and its improvement in different languages are still not clear. Therefore, the purpose of this paper was to evaluate the memory performance in alphabetic and ideographic language groups. Besides, the relationship between initial memory and its improvement was investigated. The results indicated short term memory in ideographic language was higher than those in alphabetic language and forward digit span improvement was positive related to its initial performance.
