Funding Agency 

Office of Naval Research

Description 

ISR Associate Research Scientist Jonathan Fritz received a $150K seed grant from the Office of Naval Research for a one-year study that will lay the groundwork for exploring the neural basis for working memory. Working memory is one of the forms of memory essential for cognitive processing as we hold one image, sound or idea in mind despite the presence of other competing or distracting stimuli.
