S11 - Rethinking the role of prefrontal cortex in working memory -Chaired by: A. Compte (Barcelona, Spain)

Persistent activity in the prefrontal cortex has been long viewed as the neural correlate of working memory (WM). Recently, classification analyses in neuroimaging have probed memory content across the brain, and optogenetics and pharmacological manipulations have explored the causal role of PFC in WM. The emerging view reveals context-dependent involvement of PFC in WM tasks, from learning to categorization, suggesting a possible reformulation of PFC as the primary site of memory maintenance.
