In the recent years working memory research has experienced a great
development. The purpose of the present study is to report the most
relevant data about working memory function and physiology.
Specifically, the works reviewed below attempt to determine the nature
of visuo-spatial component of working memory. To this end, both primate
and human studies have been considered, with special attention to
clinical samples. In summary, all these data indicate that visuo-spatial
working memory engages a net of different cortical areas (e.g.
pre-frontal cortex, parietotemporal and parietooccipital areas).
Furthermore, all these anatomical areas are close or coincident those
which codify the sensory characteristics of the stimulus. Finally, it
must be emphasised the importance of keeping a close relationship
between experimental research and clinical application.
