A hierarchy of functional states in working memory

Abstract:

Extensive research has examined how information is maintained in working memory (WM), but it remains unknown how WM is used to guide behaviour. We addressed this question by combining human electrophysiology (50 subjects, male and female) with pattern analyses, cognitive modelling, and a task requiring the prolonged maintenance of two WM items and priority shifts between them. This enabled us to discern neural states coding for memories that were selected to guide the next decision from state...
