Increasing evidence supports dissociable short-term memory (STM) capacities for semantic and phonological representations. Cognitive neuropsychological data suggest that damage to the left inferior and middle frontal gyri are associated with deficits of semantic STM, while damage to inferior parietal areas is associated with deficits of phonological STM. Patients identified as having semantic STM deficits are also impaired on a number of language comprehension and production paradigms. We used… Expand
Working Memory Capacities Neurally Dissociate: Evidence from Acute Stroke
TLDR
A multivariate LSM study of phonological and semantic WM for 94 individuals at the acute stage of left hemisphere stroke provides converging evidence for separable systems for phonological or semantic WM that are distinguished from the systems supporting long-term knowledge representations in those domains. Expand
Working Memory Capacities Neurally Dissociate: Evidence from Acute Stroke
TLDR
A multivariate LSM study of phonological and semantic WM for 94 individuals at the acute stage of left hemisphere stroke provides converging evidence for separable systems for phonological or semantic WM that are distinguished from the systems supporting long-term knowledge representations in those domains.

Subdivision of frontal cortex mechanisms for language production in aphasia
TLDR
Frontal patients with different lesion profiles completed two sequencing tasks, which were hypothesized to engage partially overlapping components, and found a stimulus-specific pattern, which suggests that sub-specialization might be contingent on type of representation as well as type of control signal.

Dissociating Parieto-Frontal Networks for Phonological and Semantic Word Decisions: A Condition-and-Perturb TMS Study.
TLDR
The results provide causal evidence that ANG and aIFG contribute to semantics and that the functional significance of one area within this network depends on the functional integrity of the other. Expand

Electrophysiological signatures of phonological and semantic maintenance in sentence repetition
TLDR
Concrete sentences recruited posterior temporal cortex bilaterally, demonstrating a neural signature for the engagement of visual imagery in sentence maintenance, with phonological maintenance associated with stronger oscillatory modulations. Expand
Maintaining verbal short-term memory representations in non-perceptual parietal regions
TLDR
FMRI with representational similarity analysis and RSA decoding evidence for the retention of either phonological or semantic codes, depending on the task context, provide clear support for a dedicated buffer account of phonological STM, although evidence for a semantic buffer is equivocal. Expand
Verbal short-term memory capacities and executive function in semantic and syntactic interference resolution during sentence comprehension: Evidence from aphasia
ABSTRACT This study examined the role of verbal short‐term memory (STM) and executive function (EF) underlying semantic and syntactic interference resolution during sentence comprehension for personsExpand
Neural dynamics of verbal working memory in auditory description naming
TLDR
In the auditory naming task, inferior-precentral high-gamma activity was augmented during sentence listening, and the magnitude of augmentation was independently correlated to that during the WM task maintenance period as well as patient age. Expand
Short-term memory, working memory, and syntactic comprehension in aphasia
TLDR
There were double dissociations between performance on STM and individual comprehension tasks, indicating that normal STM is not necessary to perform normally on these tasks, and the view that STM plays a facilitatory role in supporting the use of the products of the comprehension process to accomplish operations related to tasks is supported.

This method is notable in that a comparison of the two tasks within some of the individual subjects revealed activation patterns similar to the group average, especially within left inferior frontal and left superior/middle parietal cortices. Expand

The results suggest that parietal regions are part of a network of brain areas that mediate the short-term storage and retrieval of phonologically coded verbal material. Expand
