Description: 
The working memory model by Baddeley and Hitch (1972) has proven to be a useful model guiding research in memory over more than four decades. In this part of his interview with goCognitive, Alan Baddeley describes how he got into the field of memory at the time of the Atkinson and Shiffrin model. Interested in both long-term and short-term memory, he was one of the first researchers to show a clear difference between the coding of information in both, which led to the creation of the phonological loop in the original model. This collection of short interview segments portrays his early research career and the development of the working memory model.
