Development of Working Memory: Should the Pascual-Leone and the Baddeley and Hitch Models Be Merged?
Baddeley, Alan D.; Hitch, Graham J.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v77 n2 p128-37 Oct 2000
Maintains that recent elaborations of the Baddeley and Hitch working memory model offer a better account of processes underlying cognitive development than that by existing neo-Piagetian interpretations. Argues that the episodic buffer, newly added to the model, offers a way of dealing with more complex cognitive activities. Suggests that attempts to merge the model with Pascual-Leone's is premature.
