As the name suggests it is in control of various components of WMM.
- decides what jobs are given priority
- the other models are slave drives
it works independently of the senses, unlike the other components.
this refers to the
the phonological store
- A.K.A 'inner ear'.
- It deals with perception of the sounds, with emphasis on the speech
The Articulatory loop
- A.K.A the 'Inner voice'.
- This is the verbal rehearsal system, which prevents the decay of verbal material by repeating the information until it is spoken.
- It has a two second duration
- A.K.A the inner eye
- It can be seen as the visual component of the articulatory loop.
- it organises and deals with the visual information that we have encoded (processed)
- It has also been called the "mental rough paper", because we are not only able to do simple arithmetic with it, but it also helps us draw maps out in our mind, so that we can give directions.
This component was added in later, in 2000 by Baddeley*
- It is a third slave drive system
- comprises a limited capacity system that provides temporary storage of information, which is capable of binding information from the other components and from long-term memory.
