Functional connectivity during N-back memory tasks, often used to measure working memory, captures cognitive processes that are crucial to both working and episodic memory.
Why this matters
Working and episodic memory are both vital cognitive processes in everyday functioning. By furthering our knowledge of N-back task functional connectivity, this important study provides greater insights into relationships between working memory and episodic memory.
These findings will further our understanding of numerous neurological conditions and, ultimately, help to improve their treatment.
