Working memory: the importance of theta and gamma oscillations

Curr Biol. 2010 Jun 8;20(11):R490-2. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2010.04.011.


Working memory is the ability to actively hold information in the mind. Recent results demonstrate that working memory is organized by oscillatory processes in the theta and gamma frequency range.
