This study was on the roles of gender and recall types on memory loops of working memory in the elderlies. Twenty six (26) retired public civil servants were the participants used. Their mean age was 69.75 with standard deviation age of 4.32. Fourteen (14) self constructed cards were the instrument used. 2 x 2 Factor Repeated Measure Experimental design was used while 2-way ANOVA Repeated Measures was used for analyzing the data. The result showed no significant differences between gender on working memory. However, significant differences existed between recall types on memory loops, and interaction effect was found to exist between the two independent variables. It was recommended that male elderlies be exposed more on S + V loops while female elderlies be exposed on V loop for maximum information comprehension, recall and efficient memory.
