Dual task interference The dual-task interference paradigm is one of the hallmarks of Baddeley's approach to working memory. It assumes that if a task selectively interferes with a particular type of processing but not with another type of processing, then those two... Alan Baddeley goCognitive 00:06:39
Introduction of the phonological loop The phonological loop is one of the central concepts of the working memory model. It represents a brief store of mainly verbal information together with a rehearsal mechanism. In many experiments Baddeley and colleagues have investigated the... Alan Baddeley goCognitive 00:04:57
Other uses of the phonological loop Beyond the short-term storage of verbal information for language understanding the phonological loop is engaged in many other tasks. One function of the phonological loop might be for the control of behavior - as a sequence of instructions what to... Alan Baddeley goCognitive 00:03:49
Phonological loop and language acquisition What is the phonological loop for? It seems obvious that the phonological loop has a relation to language. However - what is the exact relationship? In studies with a unique patient who had a severe phonological loop deficit Baddeley found that... Alan Baddeley goCognitive 00:08:48
The musical phonological loop One common question concerns the relation between the phonological loop and music. There seems to be a lot of overlap of the verbal functions of the phonological loop and the perception of and memory for music. Skilled musicians might use... Alan Baddeley goCognitive 00:02:14
Working memory and evolution An evolutionary perspective is a helpful tool to ask questions about the function of a particular cognitive function. Baddeley emphasizes that these kinds of questions led to important discoveries, for example the role of the phonological loop in... Alan Baddeley goCognitive 00:03:35
