The following revision is for the learning objective: evaluate two models or theories of one cognitive process with reference to research studiesyou should be able to discuss the strengths and limitations of two models or theories in the course companion, memory models can be found on pp 70 - 76central executive: the part of baddeley & hitchs working memory model responsible for the. This essay will firstly briefly describe the theories and important facts about the original multi-store model of memory (msm) and the working memory model (wmm) this essay will then evaluate the key studies within these two models and explain the strengths and weaknesses of the main theories.
The model of working memory is a multi-component model, developed in 1974 by baddeley hitch the model is based on an earlier model of memory called the multi-store model (msm) (atkinson & shiffrin, 1968.
However, alternative models are developing (see working memory) providing a different perspective on the working memory system the original model of baddeley & hitch was composed of three main components the central executive which acts as supervisory system and controls the flow of information from and to its slave systems : the phonological loop and the visuo-spatial sketchpad. Baddeley's model of working memory working memory, previously referred to as short-term memory, refers to the memory that one is currently processing this memory lasts for less than a minute and is limited in capacity in an attempt to better understand working memory, alan baddeley developed the working memory approach according to this approach, working memory is a system with several different parts that control the information being processed. Working memory is supported by dual-task studies (baddeley and hitch, 1976) the working memory model does not over emphasize the importance of rehearsal for stm retention, in contrast to the multi-store model. Contrast the multi-store model of memory with the working memory model this essay will firstly briefly describe the theories and important facts about the original multi-store model of memory (msm) and the working memory model (wmm.
A01: outline the features of the working memory model the working memory model was proposed by baddeley & hitch (1974) as an alternative to the multi-store model of memory it has been developed to directly challenge the concept of a single unitary store for short-term memories.
Introduction to the working memory model 1 key features of the working memory model – an overview 3 the phonological loop 4 able to: (1) describe each of the four components of the revised working memory model and (2) outline some of the key evidence supporting the structure of each component. The working memory model is also, more ideal than the multi-store model this is because the working memory model gives us a clear understanding of the short term memory store and how it processes information.
Baddeley's model of working memory working memory, previously referred to as short-term memory, refers to the memory that one is currently processing this memory lasts for less than a minute and is limited in capacity.
Outline and evalute the working memory model (12) in: social issues submitted by elmaham words 802 outline and evaluate the working memory model in the working memory model, there are four main components the central executive is the most important component as it is involved in problem solving and decision making much of the key.
