The central executive is where the major work of working memory occurs: phonological loop. Two components: phonological store: limited capacity, holds information for a few seconds, articulatory rehearsal process: rehearsal that can keep items in phonological store without decaying, three phenomena that support idea of a phonological loop, phonological similarity effect.
