This thesis considers the contribution of semantic cognition to verbal short-term memory (STM) in three groups of brain damaged patients. It directly compares patient groups that are typically studied separately. Patients with semantic dementia (SD) suffer a loss of core semantic representations and make phonological errors in STM tasks, suggesting that semantic knowledge binds phonological information.
