Indiana University study shows first evidence for independent working memory systems in animals

A study from Indiana University could help ensure the hundreds of millions of dollars spent each year to develop potential treatments for Alzheimer's disease aren't wasted on targeting the wrong types of memory. Jonathan Crystal, professor in Psychological and Brain Sciences and director of the Program in Neuroscience led the study.

Crystal serves as a faculty mentor to undergraduate students and additional authors on the paper include Nilda Rivera-Reyes of the University of Puerto Rico, who contributed to the research through the IU Center for Integrative Study of Animal Behavior's Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates program; and Jie-En Wu, a student at Bloomington North High School who contributed to the project over the summer through Project STEM. Dalecki’s participation was supported by the IU Science, Technology and Research Scholars Program.
