Working Memory: Theories, Models, and Controversies

Volume 63, 2011
Alan Baddeley

I present an account of the origins and development of the multicomponent approach to working memory, making a distinction between the overall theoretical framework, which has remained relatively stable, and the attempts to build more specific models within this framework. I follow this with a brief discussion of alternative models and their relationship to the framework. I conclude with speculations on further developments and a comment on the value of attempting to apply models and theories beyond the laboratory studies on which they are typically based.

Leadership: Current Theories, Research, and Future Directions

Volume 60, 2009
Bruce J. Avolio, Fred O. Walumbwa, Todd J. Weber

This review examines recent theoretical and empirical developments in the leadership literature, beginning with topics that are currently receiving attention in terms of research, theory, and practice. We begin by examining authentic leadership and its development, followed by work that takes a cognitive science approach. We then examine new-genre leadership theories, complexity leadership, and leadership that is shared, collective, or distributed. We examine the role of relationships through our review of leader member exchange and the emerging work on followership. Finally, we examine work that has been done on substitutes for leadership, servant leadership, spirituality and leadership, cross-cultural leadership, and e-leadership.

Human Aggression

Volume 53, 2002
Craig A. Anderson, Brad J. Bushman

Using the general aggression model (GAM), this review posits cognition, affect, and arousal to mediate the effects of situational and personological variables on aggression. The review also organizes recent theories of the development and persistence of aggressive personality.

Listen To An Audio Interview with Susan T. Fiske

Dr. Susan T. Fiske, Princeton University social psychologist and Editor of the Annual Review of Psychology, talks with Jordana Foster about her recent work in social neuroscience: cognitive stereotypes and gender bias, theory of mind, and the evolution of a successful career in the field of social cognition.
