BLL member Maxime Carriere wins award at the Cognitive Neuroscience Society conference (San Francisco)
News vom 03.04.2023
During the Cognitive Neuroscience Society conference held in San Francisco, Maxime Carrière presented his latest research findings on the impact of connectivity structures on Verbal Working Memory. He was honored to receive a graduate student award for his work. Using brain constrained modeling, he demonstrated that denser long-distance connections in the human brain are essential in creating strong cell assemblies for spoken words, which is not observed in poorly connected monkey brains. Moreover, his research revealed that human models exhibit longer activation than monkey models, providing further evidence for the critical role of long-distance connections in Verbal Working Memory.
