  • Working Memory Model
    • Main infomation
      • 4 Main Components
        • Central Exceutive
        • Visuosptail Sketchpad
        • Episodic Buffer
    • Central Executive
      • Control over 'Slave Systems'
      • Limited Capicity
      • Directs attention to specific tasks
    • Phonological Loop
      • Articulation Process
        • 'Inner voice' to rehearse infomation
      • Phonological Store
        • Retain infomation
      • Speech based information
      • Confusion can occur acoustically
      • Limited capacity
        • 2 Seconds
    • Visuospatial Sketchpad
      • processes visual and spatial infomation
      • Logie suggested:
        • Visual cache
          • Store colour and shape
        • Inner scribe
          • Deals with spatial aspects
    • Episodic Buffer
      • Added by Baddley in 2000
      • Main gateway for all components such as LTM to intergrade all pieces of information
    • Extra notes
      • Different areas of brain show up in brain scans for either visuospatial tasks and phonological tasks
        • Supports idea of separate systems
      • Does not comprehensively explain ALL of memory
        • Only considers STM
          • Could be argued to be incomplete
