  • Evaluation of the working memory model
    • Strengths
      • Explanatory power-explains many psychological observations
      • Supporting Evidence-recent studies show links between activation of the brain and tasks to physical representation of the WMM
      • Different kinds of memory-memory as one activity but now there's different kinds of memory
      • Comparing to the MSM-emphasis on process rather than structure, non-unitary store with more than one component
    • Limitations
      • The Central executive-not sure what it is, doesn't really explain anything, several components of the CE not just one, more complex than represented
  • You can't make before and after comparisons, so it is not clear whether changes in behavior are caused by the damage
