Working model of memory

HideShow resource information
who developed WWM
Baddeley and Hitch
1 of 20
Why was it developed?
to account for the duel procsessing that allows us to engage in two activities simultaneously and unimpeded despite both using memory
2 of 20
What is the phonological loop broken down into?
In 1986 Baddeley split it into the phonological store and the articulatory process
3 of 20
What is the phonological store?
It holds the words you hear like and inner ear
4 of 20
What is the articulatory process?
used for words that are heard but not seen and are silently looped like an inner voice
5 of 20
What is the Visuo-spatial sketchpad?
It helps us plan spatial tasks
6 of 20
Who broke it down and into what?
Logie (1995) broke it down into the visual cache and the inner scribe
7 of 20
what is the inner scribe?
stores the arrangement of objects in a visual field
8 of 20
What is the visual cache?
stores information about visual objects such as form and color
9 of 20
When was the episodic buffer added?
the episodic buffer was added in 2000 by Baddeley
10 of 20
What is the EB's function?
to store nonspecific information for joint tasks as the CE has no space for that. it integrates information from different subsections

E1 (strength): How does the WMM solve duel task performance?
Baddeley and Hitch (1976) conducted a study
12 of 20
E1: What did task 1do to preocupy the CE?
It presents a statement: "A comes before B" before showing BA and asking whether its true or false
13 of 20
E1: what were the two conditions to task 2?
It either involved the articulatory loop = saying the repeatedly OR it invloved the AL and the CE saying random digits
14 of 20
E1: what were the findings?
Task 1 was slower when task 2 involved both the AL and the CE
15 of 20
E2: which case studies support the WMM?
KF could remember visual stimuli but not a aural stimulus suggesting that his Phonological loop was damaged
16 of 20
E2: how does SC support WMM?
while his learning was good he could not remember word pairs suggesting that he was
17 of 20
E2: how does LH support WMM?
He was better at spatial tasks than those involving visual imagery: suggesting his visual cache has damaged
18 of 20
E3: who criticized the CE for being to vague?
Eslinger and Damasio (1985) - They studied EVR who had good reasoning ability but poor dicision making skills = The CE is too vague
19 of 20
E4: Why is there an issue with basing supporting reaserch on brain damage patients?
Brain damage by it's nature is traumatic which suggests that there may be a confoundig variable that underlies behavior and may invalidate the supporting evidence
