Rhythmic Interactions Between Cortical Layers Underlie Working Memory

Working memory is a sort of “mental sketchpad” that allows you to accomplish everyday tasks such as calling in your hungry family’s takeout order and finding the bathroom you were just told “will be the third door on the right after you walk straight down that hallway and make your first left.” It also allows your mind to go from merely responding to your environment to consciously asserting your agenda.

Wild Rumors Fly as Pentagon Shuts Down Questions on Secretive 'Zuma' Mission

It's been perhaps the weirdest week of news and mysteries in the history of private spaceflight. And it's ending in a swirl of confusion at the Pentagon — fueled in part by whispers of spaceplanes, experimental vehicles, and the CIA.

Here's how things got to this point. (If you're caught up on this story, scroll down for the new stuff.)

On Sunday night (Jan. 7), as Live Science previously reported, a long-delayed, classified SpaceX mission, codenamed Zuma, finally took off carrying its mysterious Northrup Grumman payload. The launch appeared to go well, but sometime after SpaceX turned off the cameras on its Falcon 9 rocket — standard procedure before deploying a classified payload — something appears to have gone haywire.

Neuroscientists suggest a model for how we gain volitional control of what we hold in our minds

Working memory is a sort of "mental sketchpad" that allows you to accomplish everyday tasks such as calling in your hungry family's takeout order and finding the bathroom you were just told "will be the third door on the right after you walk straight down that hallway and make your first left." It also allows your mind to go from merely responding to your environment to consciously asserting your agenda. "Working memory allows you to choose what to pay attention to, choose what you hold in mind, and choose when to make decisions and take action," says Earl K. Miller, the Picower Professor in MIT's Picower Institute for Learning and Memory and the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences. "It's all about wresting control from the environment to your own self. Once you have something like working memory, you go from being a simple creature that's buffeted by the environment to a creature that can control the environment." For years Miller has been curious about how working memory—particularly the volitional control of it—actually works. In a new study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences led by Picower Institute postdoc Andre Bastos, Miller's lab shows that the underlying mechanism depends on different frequencies of brain rhythms synchronizing neurons in distinct layers of the prefrontal cortex (PFC), the area of the brain associated with higher cognitive function. As animals performed a variety of working memory tasks, higher-frequency gamma rhythms in superficial layers of the PFC were regulated by lower-frequency alpha/beta frequency rhythms in deeper cortical layers.

Quibray Bay

What seemed like a good idea, or in this case what seemed like a good spot to take a picture ended up as a not so much of a good idea or spot :)

Each little tree beckoned me further into the swamp that is Quibray bay, each little tree held such promise from afar but alas as I got close it did not seem so good. I did settle on this little tree, only because each step i took back resulted in me being knee deep in oyster shell filled mud. I suppose looking on the bright side it did mean, being knee deep in the mud, I had only a short way to bend down to be able to get this picture :)
Also the mozzies could not get my legs 'cause they were covered in mud :) gerry ftw.

I do like this little part of Botany bay, it takes a little planning to be able to get out to spots like this at the right time of the day, the only access (that I know of) is via the waterline, hence if its high tide your not getting in there unless you swim or kayak. Its a shame that it appears to be the back water area for all the plastic in Botany Bay to wash but there is evidence of people actively trying to combat the massess of waste that pile up there each month - i bet they are local volunteers :)
