Background and Aim: Auditory and speech processing is based on bottom – up (data – driven) processing which in turn depends on acoustic signal input and integration of central auditory pathways. Moreover interpreting auditory information involves top- down ( concept – driven ) processing, which is dependent on higher central resources such as working memory capacity and attention. Working memory has important function in auditory perception process and deficit in working memory causes auditory processing disorder. This study was aimed to introduce importance of working memory in auditory information processing and evaluate its role in CAPD children according to recent clinical researches
Materials and Methods: For reviewing of the latest literature about function of working memory in auditory information processing from 2000 till now, articles were selected from Pubmed, Science Direct, Google Scholar, Proquest data sources.
Results: Detecting auditory processing disorder needs complete approach which consider assessment of cognitive factors such as working memory and central executive function. It should be emphasized, that in addition to central auditory processing tests, assessment of bottom-up and top-down processing should be considered.
