Brown & Hulme, 1995; Lewandowsky & Farrell, 2000). 2: The supporting link between the data and the model is weakened because the WLE is no longer uniquely and exclusively compatible with the phonological loop. In fact, we may take an even more radical step by asking whether the phonological loop model even predicts the very data that constitute its principal support.

First, it is not always possible to specify a presumed process at the level of detail required for an explanatory model, and in that case, a model such as the earlier MPT model might be a valuable alternative. Second, there are cases in which a coarse characterization may be preferable to a detailed specification. For example, it is vastly more important for a weatherman to know whether it is raining or snowing, rather than being confronted with the exact details of the water molecules’ Brownian motion.
