LOC article on brain cell networks in the press!

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!
