Activation of long-term memory by alpha oscillations in a working-memory task?

  • Wolfgang Klimesch (a1) and Bärbel Schack (a2)
Abstract

We focus on the functional specificity of theta and alpha oscillations and show that theta is related to working memory, whereas alpha is related to semantic long-term memory. Recent studies, however, indicate that alpha oscillations also play an important role during short-term memory retention and retrieval. This latter finding provides support for the basic hypothesis suggested by Ruchkin et al.
