This is called ________. Neuroscience of the Phonological Loop Left parietal cortex and auditory cortex is activated during rehearsal is activated when info is stored in the phonological store. Left frontal cortex, motor cortex, and Broca’s area are activated during rehearsal. Neuroscience of the sketchpad Portions of the occipital and parietal lobes are involved in the visuospatial sketch pad subprocesses. Why? The Central Executive Manages the problems of ______ aka the process of simultaneously performing two distinct tasks in the phonological loop and visuospatial sketchpad. Regulates the maintenance and manipulation of information in working memory. Ex: digit span Maintenance involves ventral regions of the frontal lobe Manipulation involves dorsal regions of the frontal lobe This component decides what our working memory pays attention to

Example: The central exec. Directs attention to priority activities. Neuroscience of central executive Frontal cortex Working and short term memory The U-haul example Episodic Buffer Baddley (2000) refined his model of working memory called: The Episodic Buffer a temporary backup storage site that communicates with info in the LTM. Example: you want to buy a car from CAR PLACE. Your uncle tells you it’s a 2010 model, V6 engine, LX trim, worth $7800 Enter phonological loop Info transferred to MTN thru episodic buffer You then go to the car salesman, who tells you new info about the car Registers in phonological loop You examine the interior of the car and imagine what it would look like if you were sitting in it driving to school Visuo-spatial sketchpad Central executive coordinates this info. The episodic buffer retrieves info from LTM tapping into the storage of uncle’s info of car/model/price. The central executive is involved in the decision to buy the car or not depending on what your uncle said and what you learned from the car salesman. Working Memory Span Test Single task If you have to answer only the math problems or only remember the letters

Dual task How are memories forgotten? Decay Memories weaken in strength all the time Interference Other memories that are part of a similar schema or cue interference with retrieving the info you need.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
