Project description:

Working memory (WM) is the capacity to manipulate information in short-term memory and use it for a goal directed behavior. WM is a key component of many cognitive processes, including inference, decision-making, mental calculations or awareness and is disrupted in many neurological and psychiatric diseases like Schizophrenia, Depression and ADHD. WM is a primary focus of research in cognitive neuroscience with more than six papers published every day. Despite this accumulation of research our knowledge about the cellular basis of WM in humans remains limited. This is because the traditional, non-invasive techniques employed in the field of cognitive neuroscience lack the resolution necessary to study this aspect of the human brain.

The main objective of the project is to provide insights into the neuronal mechanisms of WM at the single-neuron level and translate these results into network-level knowledge.
