Backtracking? Rehearsing and replaying some old arguments about short-term memory

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (1):107-108 (1999)
Abstract
We discuss the role of short-term auditory verbal storage within a working memory system. Data from single case studies of patients with left parietal lesions and selective impairment of memory span are discussed in order to address the question of the functions of short-term memory in language processing. The backup resource of auditory verbal short-term memory is required for those tasks that necessitate backtracking in order to integrate a verbal message within a developing central cognitive representation.
