Neural Correlates of Sublexical Processing in Phonological Working Memory
The results identify the planum temporale as a key region in pWM; within this region, representations are likely to take the form of auditory or audiomotor “templates” or “chunks” at the level of the syllable.
Neural mechanisms underlying the grouping effect in short‐term memory
Fundamental magnetic resonance imaging was used to compare the auditory encoding of grouped and ungrouped lists of sub‐span and supra‐span length and predicted enhanced recall of grouped lists.
Dissociable Mechanisms of Verbal Working Memory Revealed through Multivariate Lesion Mapping.
Results suggest that maintenance of auditory information preferentially relies on auditory-phonological storage in the STG via a nonarticulatory maintenance when demands are low, which reduces the reliance on STG for maintenance under higher demands.
Specialized neural dynamics for verbal and tonal memory: fMRI evidence in congenital amusia
Comparing typical nonmusician listeners to individuals with congenital amusia, who exhibit pitch memory impairments with preserved verbal memory, suggests specialized cortical systems for tonal and verbal short‐term memory in the human brain.
Non-perceptual Regions in the Left Inferior Parietal Lobe Support Phonological Short-term Memory: Evidence for a Buffer Account?
A functional connectivity analysis showed that, as memory load increased, the left temporal lobe involved in perception became more strongly connected with the parietal region involved in maintenance.

Neural Dynamics of Phonological Processing in the Dorsal Auditory Stream
The temporal dynamics of the dorsal auditory pathway described here offer a new understanding of its functional organization and demonstrate that temporal information is essential to resolve neural circuits underlying complex behaviors.


Auditory–Motor Interaction Revealed by fMRI: Speech, Music, and Working Memory in Area Spt
The concept of auditory-motor interaction pervades speech science research, yet the cortical systems supporting this interface have not been elucidated. Drawing on experimental designs used in recent

Detection of Sounds in the Auditory Stream: Event-Related fMRI Evidence for Differential Activation to Speech and Nonspeech
Speech stimuli elicited significantly greater activation than both complex and simple nonspeech stimuli in classic receptive language areas, namely the middle temporal gyri bilaterally and in a locus lateralized to the left posterior superior temporal gyrus.
Working memory retention systems: a state of activated long-term memory.
High temporal resolution event-related brain potential and electroencephalographic coherence studies of the neural substrate of short-term storage in working memory indicate that the sustained
Separate neural subsystems within 'Wernicke's area'.
The results are compatible with an hypothesis that the posterior superior temporal cortex is specialized for processes involved in the mimicry of sounds, including repetition, the specific role of the posterior left superior temporal sulcus being to transiently represent phonetic sequences, whether heard or internally generated and rehearsed.
