Professor Alan Baddeley on Working Memory

Professor Alan Baddeley is a Professor of Psychology who has done a lot of pioneering work on memory. I learnt a lot from his book ‘Human Memory: Theory and Practice’ when I’d first been interested in learning about memory. The other day I came across a video of Professor Baddeley and it was great to hear him explaining one of the key models of working memory that he had pioneered. The model includes components for the temporary storage of visual and auditory information. This and other videos featuring Professor Baddeley as well as other scientists can be found on the GoCognitive YouTube channel. GoCognitive is a website which is developing educational tools for cognitive neuroscience and is well worth a look.
