Researchers Outline a New Model of Working Memory

News   May 17, 2019 | Original story from Princeton Neuroscience Institute

 
A New Model of Working Memory

Stimuli from our sensory world are processed separately through the prism of structured, ring-like, sensory networks in the brain. According to the new model of working memory from Princeton University's Flora Bouchacourt and Tim Buschman, these representations randomly project to higher cortical areas, where they are flexibly combined. This flexible workspace permits us to create higher cognitive thoughts, like birds flying through the sky. Credit: Courtesy of the authors.
