The relation between working memory and language comprehension in signers and speakers

Karen Emmorey, Marcel R. Giezen, Jennifer A.F. Petrich, Erin Spurgeon, Lucinda O'Grady Farnady
2017 Acta Psychologica  
Results from the linguistic serial recall tasks revealed that the often reported advantage for speakers on linguistic short-term memory tasks does not extend to complex WM tasks with a serial recall component  ...  Sign languages are both linguistic and visual-spatial, and therefore provide a unique window on modality-specific versus modality-independent contributions of WM resources to language processing.  ...  We would like to thank our research participants, Tanya Denmark for help with development of the sign span task, and Allison Bassett and Kristen Secora for help with the study.  ...

Seeing the talker's face supports executive processing of speech in steady state noise

Sushmit Mishra, Thomas Lunner, Stefan Stenfelt, Jerker Rönnberg, Mary Rudner
2013 Frontiers in Systems Neuroscience  
Listening to speech in noise depletes cognitive resources, affecting speech processing.  ...  In the CSCT, lists of two-digit numbers were presented with and without visual cues in quiet, as well as in steady-state and speechlike noise at a high intelligibility level.  ...  The reading span test is a well-established test of verbal WMC (Daneman and Carpenter, 1980; Rönnberg et al., 1989) that has proved to be a potent predictor of the ability to unravel linguistic complexity  ...

Second Language Working Memory Deficits and Plasticity in Hearing Bimodal Learners of Sign Language

Joshua Williams, Isabelle Darcy, Sharlene Newman
2015 Psychology of Language and Communication  
Differential indexing within the WM system based on language modality may explain differences in performance on WM tasks in sign and spoken language.  ...  We posited that this disadvantage arises out of an inability to correctly and efficiently allocate linguistic information to the visuospatial sketchpad due to L1-related indexing bias.  ...  Reading and listening span tasks, which were thought to tax both the processing and storage components, were implemented to test this hypothesis.  ...
