Working Memory Model

HideShow resource information
What researcher helped develop this theory?
Baddeley
1 of 18
What did he use to prove where it was in the brain?
Patients with lesions on the brain
2 of 18
What store did the working memory replace in the MSM model
The STM
3 of 18
Name the different areas of the model?
Central Executive, Phonological Loop, Visuospatial Sketchpad
4 of 18
What does the Central Executive do?
Supervises the system and control the flow of information
5 of 18
What does the Phonological Loop do?
Holds sound information
6 of 18
What does the visuospatial sketchpad do?
Deals with visual and spatial information
7 of 18
What two parts are present in the Phonological loop?
The Inner Ear and the inner voice
8 of 18
What does the inner ear do?
Linked to speech perception. Holds info for about 1-2 secs
9 of 18
What reasoning did Baddeley use to justify why he said the stores were separate
People asked to do two tasks using the same store find it incredibly difficult to do so but using two different stores does work
10 of 18
What does the inner voice do?
Speech production. Used to store and rehearse verbal info from the phonological store
11 of 18
What is the episodic buffer?
This acts as a backup store that communicates with the LTM and with some parts of the Working memory
12 of 18
What does the phonological loop do in real life?
Reading
13 of 18
What does the central executive do in real life?
Problem Solving
14 of 18
What does visual and spatial processing do in real life?
Navigation
15 of 18
What brain damaged patient case study supports this model of memory?
The KF patient
16 of 18
What is a strength of the Working Memory Model?
It expands on the multi-store model meaning their is already a big basis of evidence that supports it
17 of 18
What is another strength of the Working Memory Model?
There is a lot of evidence that has been generated and also is still being generated, there is also neurophysical evidence for this model not just experimental
