Dr. Alan Baddeley has been one of the leading researchers in the field of working memory. His model of working memory, published with Dr. Graham Hitch in 1972, has been one of the seminal models to guide research in memory. In his interview with goCognitive, Dr. Baddeley describes the different components of working memory and how their roles have changed over the years.
