2. Name 3 Episodic Buffer points?

  • accsesed by central executive, takes information from different sources, can draw on information from the LTM if needed for the working memory
  • acoustic encoding, spatial encoding, visual encoding
  • small capacity, long duration, controls slave systems
  • illustarates how the buffer works, codes information in images, uses articulory control process

3. What are the four components of the Working Memory Model?

  • language, episodic, visual and central systems
  • central executive, articulatory loop, visuospatial sketchpad and episodic buffer
  • visual, spatial, acoustic and realistic models
  • short term memory, long term memory, sensory memory and central executive

4. What is the main role of the Central Exeutive?

  • to decide how to allocate its resources
  • stores visual and spatial information
  • distorts memories to fit with expectations
  • reherses information to be transferred

5. What is the Visualsptial Sketchpad responsible for?

  • sharing out incoming information
  • maintaining a high cognitive process
  • briefly storing visual and spatial information, which can be maintained by rehearsal and has a limited capacity
  • transferring images from STM to LTM
