The workshop will provide practicing clinicians with an overview of working memory (WM) and the neuroanatomy involved, as well as highlight current conceptual, neurological and clinical aspects of WM. Theoretical models of WM in the evolution of language and human cognition, the significance of WM for language development, production and comprehension in mono- and bilinguals, and the impacts of biological processes associated with aging on WM in a variety of neurogenic disorders of communication in adults will be addressed. Current approaches to assessment and treatment for memory loss and WM deficits including strengths and limitations also will be outlined.
