Internal Story Making, Wayne Kronz

In year 2000, Alan Baddeley thought it necessary to further sub-divide the working memory. In the past, he and Graham Hitch had renamed the “short term memory,” The Working Memory, , , because of how busy this part of the human brain was.

At that time they identified three sub-divisions of The Working Memory, the phonological loop, the visual-spatial sketchpad and the central executive.

To Baddeley, something had to be added to account for the minds understanding of incoming information as an event or story. And so they added the Episodic Buffer.

So as a graphic designer, not a neurologist, I’m suggesting that it is instinctive to humans evaluating new incoming data, to attempt to make a story out of it all. It’s just the way we are.

We tend to want to make an “episode” out of everything.

So, I am suggesting five questions that we sub-consciously ask about all in-coming information.

I’m sure there are other questions, but these five will help you see what is going on in the human brain when we are listening and watching a speaker or presenter.  I hope this musical model helps you get the picture.

More later,
