The recent LOC article from Henry Zeringue (University of Pittsburgh) and team has been highlighted on ScienceDaily. The article describes the creation of a model of the ring-shaped networks of neurons in the brain, to help understand the mechanisms behind persistent activity – which is involved in memory and motor planning.
Congratulations to Henry Zeringue and team!
