Slot and resource models have been influential in the study of visual working memory capacity. However, several recent empirical findings are not explicitly predicted by either model. These findings include: (1) a shared limit on the fidelity of working memory and long-term memory, (2) stochastic variability in working memory that is not explained by uneven allocation of a commodity such as slots or resources, and (3) the existence of structured representations. Together, these findings demand either significant modification of existing slot and resource models, or the introduction of a new framework for understanding visual working memory capacity.
