Content- and Task-Specific Dissociations of Frontal Activity during Maintenance and Manipulation in Visual Working Memory

H. M. Mohr
2006 Journal of Neuroscience  
Working memory, the short-term maintenance and manipulation of information, relies strongly on neural activity in the frontal cortex.  ...  Functional imaging studies in human participants have attempted to reveal neural correlates of the subdivision of visual working memory into different processes (maintenance vs manipulation) and according  ...  In the left frontal cortex, this dissociation followed a dorsoventral gradient, with dorsal premotor cortex more active during spatial and a region along the IFS during color working memory, regardless  ...
