Working Memory: The multiple-component model
FIVE CENTRAL FEATURES OF THE MODEL (1) According to our view, working memory comprises multiple specialized components of cognition that allow humans to comprehend and mentally represent theirExpand
Age-of-acquisition, imagery, concreteness, familiarity, and ambiguity measures for 1,944 words
Age-of-acquisition, imagery, concreteness, familiarity, and ambiguity measures for 1,944 words of varying length and frequency of occurrence are presented. The words can all be used as nouns.Expand
The Prospective and Retrospective Memory Questionnaire (PRMQ): Normative data and latent structure in a large non-clinical sample
The Prospective and Retrospective Memory Questionnaire was developed to provide a self-report measure of prospective and retrospective memory slips in everyday life and ten competing models of the latent structure of the PRMQ were derived from theoretical and empirical sources and were tested using confirmatory factor analysis.

The formation of flashbulb memories
A causal analysis of secondary variables showed that the formation of FB memories was primarily associated with the level of importance attached to the event and level of affective response to the news. Expand
Prospective and retrospective memory in normal ageing and dementia: A questionnaire study
Frequency of prospective memory and retrospective memory failures was rated on a 16-item questionnaire by 862 volunteers, from five groups: patients with Alzheimer Disease (rated by carers), carersExpand
The Functional Organization and Capacity Limits of Working Memory
Working memory refers to keeping track of ongoing mental processes and temporary memory. One hypothesis is that this form of memory consists of multiple domain-specific components. Over four decades,Expand
Counting on working memory in arithmetic problem solving
The data support the view that the subvocal rehearsal component of working memory provides a means of maintaining accuracy in mental arithmetic, and this matches a similar conclusion derived from previous work on counting. Expand
Concurrent performance of two memory tasks: Evidence for domain-specific working memory systems
The data suggest that a multiple-component working memory model provides a better account for performance in concurrent immediate memory tasks than do theories that assume a single processing and storage system or a limited-capacity attentional system coupled with activated memory traces. Expand

The results suggest that unattended visual material has privileged access to the mechanism(s) involved in short-term visuo-spatial processing and storage and suggest that use of a concurrent visual matching task or of unattendedvisual material may provide tractable techniques for investigating this aspect of cognitive function within the context of working memory.
