Long-term memory and the episodic buffer
This chapter attempts to determine how working memory and long-term memory interact. It begins by considering a number of alternative views that would largely dispense with the question. Working memory as language processing is first discussed followed by the view of working memory as activated long-term memory. The author's decision to postulate a central executive devoid of memory capacity led to a number of problems. These problems are categorized into three and are assessed in this chapter. The latter part of this chapter introduces the concept of the episodic buffer. This buffer is assumed to be a temporary storage system that is able to combine information from the loop, the sketchpad, long-term memory, or indeed from perceptual input, into a coherent episode.
