Caching for where and what: evidence for a mnemonic strategy in a scatter-hoarder.

Caching for where and what: evidence for a mnemonic strategy in a scatter-hoarder. R Soc Open Sci. 2017 Sep;4(9):170958 Authors: Delgado MM, Jacobs LF Abstract Scatter-hoarding animals face the task of maximizing retrieval of their scattered food caches while minimizing loss to pilferers. This demand should select for mnemonics, such as chunking, i.e. a hierarchical […]

Should a Few Null Findings Falsify Prefrontal Theories of Conscious Perception?

Should a Few Null Findings Falsify Prefrontal Theories of Conscious Perception? J Neurosci. 2017 Oct 04;37(40):9593-9602 Authors: Odegaard B, Knight RT, Lau H Abstract Is activity in prefrontal cortex (PFC) critical for conscious perception? Major theories of consciousness make distinct predictions about the role of PFC, providing an opportunity to arbitrate between these views empirically. […]
