ISVR Hearing and Balance Centre Research Seminar

Working memory is the capacity to hold and manipulate behaviourally relevant information in mind in the absence of ongoing sensory input. In terms of audition, working memory is an important process for communication and learning. However, very little is known about the brain mechanisms underlying auditory working memory. In Iowa, we have the rare opportunity of recording neural activity directly from the brains of epilepsy patients, whilst they undergo monitoring prior to surgery to remove epileptic brain tissue. I will discuss some our work to examine what areas of the brain are involved in auditory working memory and how they do this.
