Working memory for sound identity (What) and sound location (Where) has been associated with increased neural activity in ventral and dorsal brain regions, respectively. To further ascertain this domain specificity, we measured fMRI signals during an n-back (n=1, 2) working memory task for sound identity or location, where stimuli selected randomly from three semantic categories (human, animal, and music) were presented at three possible virtual locations. Accuracy and reaction times were… CONTINUE READING
