Abstract

Current literature supports specialized working memory (WM) capacities that handle distinct types of linguistic information. Previously, a task was developed by Wright et al. (2007) to measure phonological WM by manipulating the stimulus type in people with aphasia. The study explored the relationship between phonological WM, as measured by PhonoBack, and auditory comprehension of phonologically demanding sentences in people with conduction aphasia. Preliminary results suggest that PhonoBack is able to detect phonological WM deficits in participants with aphasia. Clinical and theoretical implications of the results will be discussed in detail.
