Lesion to human parietal cortex impair working memory!

Wayne does it again and publishes a great paper with our collaborators.  Check it out in publications! Abstract: The neural mechanisms that support working memory (WM) depend on persistent neural activity. Within topographically organized maps of space in dorsal parietal cortex, spatially selective neural activity persists during WM for location. However, to date, the necessity of [...]
