This ground-breaking text, now in a paperback edition, describes a new model for temporary memory--the brief, nonpermanent storage of information necessary for learning, reasoning, and comprehension. Dr. Baddeley outlines the concept of working memory, which entails a central executive controller and a number of "slave" systems. Two of these systems are justified in terms of experimental results from both normal and brain damaged subjects. The concept of working memory is applied to the development of children's reading skills, and the cognitive deficits observed in patients suffering from frontal lobe damage are considered. Cognitive psychologists and advanced students in the field will welcome the paperback version of this acclaimed work.
