ARTICULATORY LOOP

in models of working memory, a dedicated memory store that holds auditory information. If, for example, one tried to memorize a telephone number by repeating it over and over (see rote rehearsal), this repetition would take place in the articulatory loop.

ARTICULATORY LOOP: "The articulatory loop is a special memory store for auditory information, that helps one to remember, for example, a telephone number."
