Abstract Impaired working memory (WM) performance is considered as a central feature of schizophrenia. Divided into two components, verbal and spatial, WM has been shown to involve frontal and parietal regions. Verbal WM can be tested either visually or aurally. The present study aimed to test schizophrenic patients in both visual and auditory verbal WM in order to assess a possible distinct pattern of alteration of these two modalities. Twenty-four schizophrenic patients and 24 healthy… Expand
Nonverbal working memory deficits in schizophrenia patients: Evidence of a supramodal executive processing deficit
TLDR
These data demonstrate that the working memory deficit displayed by schizophrenia and schizophrenia-spectrum patients extends to nonspatial visual domains and significant associations between global ratings of negative symptoms and working memory performance are observed. Expand
Neuropsychological performance in schizotypal personality disorder: importance of working memory.
TLDR
The view that working memory represents a core deficit of schizophrenia spectrum disorders is supported, since controlling for Paced Auditory Serial Addition Test performance abolished group differences across all other measures. Expand
Working memory impairments in schizophrenia: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
The results suggest that WM deficit in schizophrenia is modality independent and that encoding and/or early part of maintenance may be problematic. Expand
Volumetric abnormalities associated with cognitive deficits in patients with schizophrenia
TLDR
The results indicate that regional abnormalities in brain structure may offer an account for some impaired cognitive domains in patients with schizophrenia, while other cognitive domains may remain relatively less affected by volumetric alterations. Expand
Wisconsin Card Sorting Test performance in schizophrenia: the role of working memory
TLDR
The pattern of results supports the conclusion that WM impairment contributes to poor performance on the Wisconsin Card Sorting Test in individuals with schizophrenia, with additional evidence that this impairment results from generalized slowing of information processing. Expand
Impairments in perceptual competency and maintenance on a visual delayed match-to-sample test in first-episode schizophrenia.
TLDR
Deficits in both domains of WM suggest abnormality in the posterior and prefrontal cortexes and are present even in unmedicated patients in the first episode of illness. Expand
Temporospatial Characterization of Brain Oscillations (TSCBO) Associated with Subprocesses of Verbal Working Memory in Schizophrenia
TLDR
In schizophrenia, the encode and maintain subprocesses were associated with less ERS and less ERD, respectively, and these ERS/ERD abnormalities had specificity in terms of frequency and spatial location. Expand
Functional MRI of auditory verbal working memory: long-term reproducibility analysis
TLDR
By multi-subject analysis of data from a relatively small number of subjects, reasonably reproducible activation for the 2-back verbal WM paradigm can be achieved and the level of reproducibility encourages the application of this fMRI paradigm to the evaluation of cognitive changes in future investigations.

Assessment of Working Memory in Children
Publisher Summary The concept of memory span has been a very powerful one, invoking the notion of a particular mental space, or capacity, by which the participant is limited in his or herExpand
Sensory and Motor Encoding Strategies in n-Back Tasks: A Simulation of Schizophrenic Working Memory Deficits in Healthy Subjects
TLDR
The behavioural alteration in schizophrenic patients in n-back tasks can be induced in healthy subjects by experimentally preventing the use of a motor encoding strategy. Expand

Word and tone working memory deficits in schizophrenia.
TLDR
One subgroup of patients with schizophrenia has a selective deficit in verbal memory despite normal motivation, attention, and general perceptual function and another group has deficits in multiple aspects of cognitive function suggestive of failure in early stages of information processing. Expand
Spatial working memory deficits in the relatives of schizophrenic patients.
TLDR
Some relatives of schizophrenic patients are impaired on tasks that tap spatial working memory and that implicate the prefrontal system, and the delayed response paradigm may be useful in elucidating the multidimensionality of the schizophrenic phenotype. Expand
Visuospatial working memory in patients with schizophrenia
TLDR
It is determined that whenever memory was necessitated on spatial tasks, patients demonstrated marked deficits, consistent with impairments in a neural network involving prefrontal and/or posterior brain regions in schizophrenia. Expand
Attenuated frontal activation during a verbal fluency task in patients with schizophrenia.
TLDR
Functional magnetic resonance imaging was used to study changes in cerebral blood oxygenation in schizophrenic patients during a verbal fluency task and displayed attenuated power of response in several frontal regions during word generation but greater power ofresponse in the medial parietal cortex during word repetition. Expand
The generalized pattern of neuropsychological deficits in outpatients with chronic schizophrenia with heterogeneous Wisconsin Card Sorting Test results.
TLDR
Overall, the schizophrenic outpatients showed relatively modest increases in the number of perseverative responses on the Wisconsin Card Sorting Test of abstraction flexibility, and this pattern of results supports the idea that, while some schizophrenic patients may have fixed, frontally based dysfunctions, these Dysfunctions may be most prominent, and even fixed, in deteriorated, kraepelinian patients.

Auditory working memory and Wisconsin Card Sorting Test performance in schizophrenia.
TLDR
Regression analyses suggested that LN span performance predicted the WCST category achieved score, whereas measures of set shifting, verbal fluency, and attention were predictive of perseveration. Expand

TLDR
Findings lend support to the hypothesized importance of the temporal-hippocampal region in understanding the pathophysiology of schizophrenia and the selectivity and relative severity compared with other behavioral functions. Expand
Working memory as assessed by subject-ordered tasks in patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder.
We tested patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and normal subjects (n = 18 per group) on a self-paced, working memory task that, based on studies of patients with focal brain lesions andExpand
Working memory in childhood-onset schizophrenia and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
Both schizophrenic and ADHD children showed deficits in verbal and spatial working memory, which suggest that in both disorders, the capacity of the sensory buffers may be diminished, and the availability and allocation of resources to the central executive may be limited. Expand
PET Evidence for an Amodal Verbal Working Memory System
TLDR
An almost complete overlap between the active memory areas regardless of input modality was revealed, suggesting that verbal working memory is modality independent and is mediated by a circuit involving frontal, parietal, and cerebellar mechanisms. Expand
