Unit 06a Goals and Objectives Working Memory Part I Lecture Notes: 06a Working Memory Part I At the end of this unit, you should know and be able to use the following terms: Working memory model Phonological loop Visual spatial sketchpad Articulatory suppression Phonological similarity effect Central executive . At the end of this unit, you should be able to answer the following questions: 1. What are the three components of working memory and what is each responsible for? 2. What is the evidence that these components are actually separate from one another? Make sure that you know the logic of interference studies as well as the results of the specific studies that we covered in class and in the notes. 3.

Unformatted text preview: are the effects on short-term memory of phonological similarity for words presented acoustically? For words presented visually? What does it indicate concerning our biases for encoding information in working memory? 5. What does the technique of articulatory suppression involve? What is its effect on items already in the phonological store? Of visually presented items that we normally would translate into the phonological store? What are the effects of articulatory suppression on phonologically similar and dissimilar words that are presented auditorily? That are presented visually? 6. Know the Brandimonte and Gerbino experiment (the one with the ambiguous duck/rabbit figure)—what they did, what they found, and how they interpreted the results. What does it tell us about the relative bias of adults and children in terms of how they like to encode information in working memory?...

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
