Deficiencies of verbal working memory were associated with changes in the phonological loop; [15] decreased spatial working memory was related to dysfunctions in bilateral BA9/46, BA6 and BA7/40 brain regions; [16] and deficits in autobiographical memory tasks were associated with decreased activation in the left middle temporal gyrus (BA 21), putamen, right fusiform gyrus (BA 37) and cuneus (BA 18) and with over-activation in the right superior parietal lobule (BA 7).
