Neural mechanism for the magical number 4: Competitive interactions and nonlinear oscillation

  • Marius Usher (a1), Jonathan D. Cohen (a2), Henk Haarmann (a3) and David Horn (a4)
Abstract

The aim of our commentary is to strengthen Cowan's proposal for an inherent capacity limitation in STM by suggesting a neurobiological mechanism based on competitive networks and nonlinear oscillations that avoids some of the shortcomings of the scheme discussed in the target article (Lisman & Idiart 1995).
