According to Parmentier and Jones (2000), serial recall of locations that are specified by a sequence of sounds is prone to temporal error and is unaffected by motor suppression during retention. Experiments are reported here that show that with increased spatial uncertainty at recall (Experiment 1) and presentation (Experiment 2), spatial rather than temporal errors predominate. This is also the case when serial recall of sound-specified locations is subject to interference from a motor suppression task (Experiment 3). Contrary to Parmentier and Jones's (2000) original report, these results suggest that the memory representation for location is not necessarily amodal but is influenced by the representational requirements of the task being performed. This is consistent with recent findings that provide evidence for a distinct spatial working memory.
