 Abstract: This study reinvestigated the functional neuroanatomy of phonological and visual working memory in humans. Articulatory suppression was used to deprive the human subjects of species-specific verbal strategies in order to make the functional magnetic resonance imaging results more comparable to findings in non-human primates. Both phonological and visual working memory processes activated similar prefronto-parietal networks but were found to be differentially distributed along several cortical structures, in particular along the anterior and posterior parts of the intermediate frontal sulcus. These results suggest that a domain-specific topographical organization of neural working memory mechanisms in the primate brain is conserved in evolution. However, the findings also underline the critical dynamic influence that the additional availability of language may have on working memory processes and their functional implementation in the human brain.
