Brain calculus: neural integration and persistent activity

Nat Neurosci. 2001 Feb;4(2):113-4. doi: 10.1038/83917.


Tank and colleagues make in vivo cellular recordings from neurons in a "neural integrator" of the goldfish involved in maintaining eye position. In this circuit, "working" memory may be the result of persistent changes in the state of the local network.
