OBJECTIVES Several lines of evidence suggest that the prefrontal cortex is involved in working memory. Our goal was to determine whether transient functional disruption of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) would impair performance in a sequential-letter working memory task. METHODS Subjects were shown sequences of letters and asked to state whether the letter just displayed was the same as the one presented 3-back. Single-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) was applied over… CONTINUE READING
