Abstract The specific impairment of performance on repetition tasks has classically been identified with conduction aphasia. It is argued that this impairment can be subdivided and a deficit in span performance distinguished from that of the reproduction of single words. An explanation of the span deficit in terms of auditory-verbal short-term memory is preferred to hypotheses involving disconnections or damage to order retention systems. It is shown that a short-term memory component is… Expand
Left hemisphere damage and selective impairment of auditory verbal short-term memory. A case study
TLDR
It can be argued that the performance for visual verbal stimuli may still be held by the left hemisphere, albeit computerized tomography showed a left-hemisphere lesion involving the whole language area. Expand
SHORT-TERM MEMORY IMPAIRMENT: EVIDENCE FROM APHASIA
To determine the mechanism of STM decline following brain damage, patients with left hemisphere damage and aphasia (LHD+), patients with left hemisphere damage without aphasia (LHD-), and personsExpand
Short-term memory impairment and spontaneous speech
TLDR
The spontaneous speech of a patient with a specific repetition deficit was studied and it was concluded that the repetition difficulty arose from an auditory-verbal short-term memory impairment and not a high-level speech production deficit. Expand
Verbal and nonverbal memory impairment in aphasia
TLDR
In aphasic stroke patients, there is a memory gradient declining gradually from verbal to nonverbal content reflecting aphasia severity and that aphasics generally perform worse than non-aphasics, even if they present with similar cerebral lesions. Expand
Short-term and working memory impairments in aphasia
TLDR
According to the findings, severity of aphasia is related with both verbal and spatial memory deficits and the lack of substantial difference between corresponding correlation coefficients suggests a possible primary deficit in information retention rather than impairment in working memory. Expand
Frontal verbal amnesia. Phonological amnesia.
TLDR
A patient with minor Broca's aphasia is described who exhibited an unusual and profound anterograde memory disturbance, especially for phonologically specified stimuli, which is suggested to be attributable to an impairment in the volitional, controlled search of stored phonological information. Expand
Short-term memory and verbal learning with auditory phonological coding defect: A neuropsychological case study
TLDR
Results suggested that a standard, selective short-term memory defect can be induced by auditory phonological coding deficits as well as by "pure" short- term memory capacity limitation and other phonological deficits, and provided evidence that lexical-semantic code can allow normal verbal learning.

Acute conduction aphasia: An analysis of 20 cases
TLDR
Verbal-auditory short-term memory was reduced in all patients except one and seems to play a role in associated cognitive deficits, such as impaired syntactic comprehension or reduced mental arithmetics. Expand
Short-term and working memory deficits in aphasia: Current issues in theory, evidence, and treatment
Abstract In this article, we introduce a special issue of the Journal of Neurolinguistics that focuses on current research in short-term and working memory impairment in aphasia. The papers areExpand
Mechanism of short-term memory and repetition in conduction aphasia and related cognitive disorders: a neuropsychological, audiological and neuroimaging study
TLDR
Damage to the periventricular white matter at the trigone may yield the phonemic paraphasia characteristic of conduction aphasia, while damage to the inferior part of the supramarginal gyrus may result in the impairment of short-term memory. Expand

TLDR
This study of a patient with a mild conduction aphasia again traces impaired repetition to faulty auditory short-term memory and shows a remarkable ability to paraphrase sentences he could not repeat verbatim, which has implications for the role of auditory memory in language comprehension. Expand
