Hi!

Exam on the 12th Im guessing?

One strength is that it is explained much more than the multi-store model as it takes into account the types of memories whereas the multi-store model is rather much a structural model and says that we have to rehearse info to get it into the LTM, whereas here it is done actively via the episodic buffer.

Baddley and hitch's test where they presented participants with an articulary supression test also supports one function of the phonological loop/articulary control. Participants were asked to repeat "hi-ya" (supression task) whilst visually presented with a list of sentences and were asked to spot the mistake. It showed that participants found it much difficult to spot the mistakes regarding the order of the word. This supports that the articulary loop is to do with the order of the word and is much more complex, rather than the simplified multi-store model.

One weakeness is that the central executive is unexplained and is much rather puzzling. Baddley said it has limited capacity, but it is untestable. It was also claimed it is divided into sub-systems but again, it isn't i dentified. We are also confused with slave systems are controlled by the CE and which are controlled by others , such as language etc.
