Rehearsal in Spatial Working Memory: Evidence From Neuroimaging
This work tested the hypothesis that the active rehearsal of spatial information in working memory is accomplished by means of focal shifts of spatial selective attention to memorized locations by using functional magnetic resonance imaging to observe posterior visual activations during the performance of a spatial working memory task.
Neural correlates of lexicon and grammar: Evidence from the production, reading, and judgment of inflection in aphasia
Coreference processing and levels of analysis in object-relative constructions; Demonstration of antecedent reactivation with the cross-modal priming paradigm
It is concluded that an underlying (deep; non-surface-level) memorial representation of the sentence is examined during the process of linking an antecedent to a structural position requiring a referent, and that the CMLP task provides an unbiased measure of this reactivation.

The results support the view that even very young children have the same structural processing reflex seen in adults, as children re-activate a non-canonically positioned (fronted) direct object NP immediately at the post-verb gap site during sentence processing.
How left inferior frontal cortex participates in syntactic processing: Evidence from aphasia
Speed of Lexical Activation in Nonfluent Broca's Aphasia and Fluent Wernicke's Aphasia
The most parsimonious explanation for the variable findings from priming studies to date is that the primary disturbance in Broca's lexical activation has something to do with speed of activation, and protracted priming suggests failure to dampen activation and might explain the semantic confusion exhibited by fluent Wernicke's patients.
Are mirror neurons the basis of speech perception? Evidence from five cases with damage to the purported human mirror system

Speech perception abilities of patients with lesions involving motor regions in the left posterior frontal lobe and/or inferior parietal lobule are measured, suggesting that ‘mirror system’ damage does not disrupt speech perception, but rather that auditory systems are the primary substrate for speech perception.
Processing distinct linguistic information types in working memory in aphasia
Results indicate that working memory ability for different types of linguistic information can be measured in adults with aphasia, and add to the growing literature that favours separate working memory abilities for differenttype linguistic information view.

Response of anterior temporal cortex to syntactic and prosodic manipulations during sentence processing
The results suggest a parcellation of anterior temporal cortex into 1) an STG region that is sensitive both to the presence of syntactic information and is modulated by prosodic manipulations (in nonsyntactic stimuli); and 2) a more inferior left STS/MTG area that is more selective for syntactic structure.
