Working Memory

Working memory is the ability to hold items 'in mind'.  It lies at the core of cognition; acting as a workspace on which thoughts are placed, manipulated, and used to guide behavior. Our research aims to understand the neural mechanisms that support working memory and why it is disrupted in many neuropsychiatric diseases, such as schizophrenia.
