Related Articles Emerging Role of Sensory Perception in Aging and Metabolism. Trends Endocrinol Metab. 2016 May;27(5):294-303 Authors: Riera CE, Dillin A Abstract Sensory perception comprises gustatory (taste) and olfactory (smell) modalities as well as somatosensory (pain, heat, and tactile mechanosensory) inputs, which are detected by a multitude of sensory receptors. These sensory receptors are contained […]
Synaptic augmentation in a cortical circuit model reproduces serial dependence in visual working memory.
Synaptic augmentation in a cortical circuit model reproduces serial dependence in visual working memory. PLoS One. 2017;12(12):e0188927 Authors: Bliss DP, D’Esposito M Abstract Recent work has established that visual working memory is subject to serial dependence: current information in memory blends with that from the recent past as a function of their similarity. This tuned […]
