Working memory, a core executive function, is a cognitive system that is responsible for the transient holding, processing, and manipulation of information. Working memory is an important process for reasoning and the guidance of decision making and behavior. Although the neural mechanisms of working memory have been explored for decades, the field is now in flux as a result of recent innovative experiments using a variety of techniques, including human fMRI, primate neurophysiology, and optogenetics in rodents. This Call is focused on the neural mechanisms of working memory.
