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 evolution of the model Baddeley describes the historic evolution of his working memory model through the last 40 years. Each iteration and modification of the model has given rise to slightly different ways of communicating the models visually. The sequence of different... Alan Baddeley goCognitive 00:08:58
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
