Verbal Working Memory Found to Depend on Two Neural Networks, With Implications for Artificial Intelligence

Two different networks are responsible for processing information in working memory, according to new research published in Nature Neuroscience in December. The findings could have implications for artificial intelligence (AI), says senior author Bijan Pesaran, a neuroscientist at the Center for Neural Science at New York University (NYU) and an investigator with the Simons Collaboration […]
