Alan David Baddeley, CBE, FRS, FMedSci (born 23 March 1934) is a British psychologist.
Alan Baddeley and Graham Hitch proposed a model of working memory in 1974, in an attempt to present a more accurate model of primary memory (often referred to as short-term memory).
Graham Hitch is Emeritus Professor of Psychology at the University of York, best known for his work with Alan Baddeley in developing a Working Memory Model.
An intelligence quotient (IQ) is a total score derived from several standardized tests designed to assess human intelligence.
Interference theory is a theory regarding human memory.
A mnemonic (the first "m" is silent) device, or memory device, is any learning technique that aids information retention or retrieval (remembering) in the human memory.
Neuroscience (or neurobiology) is the scientific study of the nervous system.
Psychology is the science of behavior and mind, including conscious and unconscious phenomena, as well as feeling and thought.
The reading span task (RST) is a common memory span task widely cited in, and adapted for, investigations of working memory, cognitive processing, and reading comprehension that was first published by Meredyth Daneman and Patricia Carpenter in 1980.
Short-term memory (or "primary" or "active memory") is the capacity for holding, but not manipulating, a small amount of information in mind in an active, readily available state for a short period of time.
"The Magical Number Seven, Plus or Minus Two: Some Limits on Our Capacity for Processing Information" is one of the most highly cited papers in psychology.
The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS) is an IQ test designed to measure intelligence and cognitive ability in adults and older adolescents.
Working memory is a cognitive system with a limited capacity that is responsible for temporarily holding information available for processing.
