There is increasing evidence to support the idea that visuo-spatial working memory can be segregated into separate cognitive subsystems. However, the nature of these systems remains unclear. In this paper we report data from two brain injured patients suggesting that information about visual appearance is retained in a different subsystem from information about spatial location, and that this differential processing can be observed when the style of presentation (sequential or simultaneous) is controlled.
