Baddeley’s Working Memory Model

Baddeley et als working memory model replaced the idea of a unitary Short-term memory store (STM) and suggested a system involving multiple stores consisting of active processing and short-term storage of information. In this model STM is an active processor (working memory) which the “Central executive” (CE) “attends to and works on” either speech based information received from the articulatory-phonological loop or visually coded information received from the Visuospatial sketchpad. The four main components of the working memory model involve;

The Central executive

This the main component of baddeleys working memory model and coordinates the other two “slave systems” and ensures they don’t go astray. It is also involved in directing “attention” and resources towards particular tasks. Information is received from the senses or long-term memory and the capacity for the CE is very limited.

The Articulatory-Phonological loop

This processes speech based information and its order with the phonological store acting like an “inner ear” and speech perception. The articulatory control process (inner voice) is linked to speech production and is used to rehearse and store verbal information from the phonological store through a form of maintenance rehearsal. Again this has limited capacity.

The Visuospatial sketchpad

This component processes visual information through the senses (eyes) or long term memory on what things look like, patterns of recognition and spatial information consisting of the rela- tionship between things and perception of movement.

While the Phonological loop and Visuospatial sketchpad deal with the processing and temporary storage of specific types of informa- tion, the episodic buffer works as an extra buffer that integrates information from all 3 main systems as well as longterm memory. The central executive has no storage capacity of its own and Baddeley realised the model required a general store to explain why some amnesia patients with no long term recall could recall information immediately. To get the full 12 mark essay with the evaluation points check out my model essays book.
