Two densely amnesic patients are shown to have good immediate but poor delayed prose recall, a result that presents problems for the current multi-component model of working memory. Examination of a wide sample of memory impaired patients suggests that this pattern occurs in densely amnesic patients who have well-preserved intelligence and good executive capacities. Patients suffering from Alzheimer's disease typically show poor immediate and delayed prose recall, reflecting their combined… Expand
Prose recall and amnesia: more implications for the episodic buffer
TLDR
It is argued that the finding of a positive association between amnesics' immediate prose recall scores and their scores on measures of executive function and fluid intelligence supports the view that an episodic buffer exists. Expand
Just lying there, remembering: Improving recall of prose in amnesic patients with mild cognitive impairment by minimising interference
TLDR
It is shown that there is a marked benefit of reduced interference in amnesic patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), a condition that is characterised by anterograde amnesia in the absence of other neuropsychological deficits and carries an increased risk for Alzheimer's disease. Expand
Working memory and executive functions in transient global amnesia.
TLDR
A comprehensive investigation of working memory in 10 patients during a TGA attack found significantly impaired performance for the Brown-Peterson test, and that TGA patients were significantly impaired in the recollection of their episodic memories. Expand
Role of working memory components in planning performance of individuals with Parkinson's disease
TLDR
The current study investigated the involvement of all four components of Baddeley's revised working memory model in deficits of planning accompanying Parkinson's disease, finding that PD resulted in poorer formulation and execution of plans, as measured by the Tower of London task. Expand
Working Memory in Aphasia: Considering Discourse Processing and Treatment Implications
TLDR
This article reviews discourse level deficits associated with aphasia, describes how a deficit at the level of the episodic buffer could cause such deficits, and presents preliminary results from a novel discourse treatment study for PWAs. Expand
Working Memory and Learning in Early Alzheimer’s Disease
TLDR
It is argued that the pattern of cognitive deficits contributing to the acquisition impairment in early AD patients may be readily interpreted within the context of a working memory model. Expand

A structural analysis of working memory and related cognitive skills in young children.
TLDR
The measurement model that provided the best fit of the data incorporates constructs that correspond to the central executive, phonological loop, and episodic buffer subcomponents of working memory, plus distinct but associated constructs associated with phonological awareness and nonverbal ability.

Spatial Working Memory in Aging and Mild Cognitive Impairment: Effects of Task Load and Contextual Cueing
TLDR
It is indicated that working memory should be considered when screening patients for suspected Mild Cognitive Impairment and monitoring its progression, and potential differential effects of memory load and additional context cues are found. Expand
Working memory and developmental language impairments
Children with developmental language impairments (DLI) are often reported to show difficulties with working memory. This review describes the four components of the well-established working memoryExpand

Preliminary support is lent for the notion of multiple cognitive impairments being responsible for the memory loss in AD. Expand
Independent Functioning of Verbal Memory Stores: A Neuropsychological Study
TLDR
Five experiments are described concerning verbal short-term memory performance of a patient who has a very markedly reduced verbal span, indicating that he has a greatly reduced short- term memory capacity and showing that this cannot be attributed to a retrieval failure. Expand
Frontal amnesia and the dysexecutive syndrome
TLDR
It is suggested that the pattern of deficits is consistent with a combination of a classic amnesic syndrome with the additional problems associated with the frontal dysexecutive syndrome, rather than exhibiting a qualitatively different form of amnesia. Expand
Semantic, episodic, and autobiographical memory in a postmeningitic amnesic patient
TLDR
It is concluded that semantic memory performance may be intact despite dense amnesia, however, this does not necessarily imply separate semantic and episodic memory systems. Expand
Analysis of the episodic memory deficit in early Alzheimer's disease: Evidence from the doors and people test
TLDR
It was concluded that the episodic memory deficit in DAT is general in nature and primarily reflects impaired learning rather than accelerated forgetting or disrupted retrieval. Expand

TLDR
The prospects for extending the approach to include a range of other executive processes, and to the way in which such an analysis may subsequently lead to a more integrated model of the central executive, and a better understanding of its relationship to the prefrontal cortex are discussed. Expand

TLDR
The revised model differs from the old principally in focussing attention on the processes of integrating information, rather than on the isolation of the subsystems, which provides a better basis for tackling the more complex aspects of executive control in working memory. Expand
The decline of working memory in Alzheimer's disease. A longitudinal study.
TLDR
There was no interaction between task difficulty as measured by number of alternatives and rate of deterioration, suggesting that the progressive deterioration in performance shown by AD patients is a function of whether single or dual task performance is required, and is not dependent on simple level of task difficulty.
