  1. Mahmoud Abdellahi is a PhD student in the Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC) at Cardiff University, United Kingdom. Mahmoud's main research interest lies in memory reactivation during sleep with Targeted Memory Reactivation (TMR), with a particular focus on the use of machine learning for the sake of classifying memory reactivation in humans. He earned his Master's degree from the faculty of computers and artificial intelligence, Cairo University. Feel free to contact him via SKNB Neuronline forum during the conference, and any time via email: abdellahime@cardiff.ac.uk He will present his work via a pre-recorded talk at: Session 193, 13.

  2. Working memory is a central component of human goal-oriented behavior, reasoning, and decision-making. It describes our ability to maintain and manipulate information over brief periods of time after the information is no longer present in the environment.In the past, comparisons between healthy young and elderly adults have suggested that working memory declines as part of normal aging and is accompanied by changes in frontal and parietal brain regions. Interventions that target working memory functions in the elderly may therefore be a promising target to slow down cognitive decline and improve quality of life in the elderly.

  3. The European Brain Research Foundation has awarded the 2016 Brain Prize to three British neuroscientists, Tim Bliss, Graham Collingridge and Richard Morris. The prize is for their independent and collaborative work on synaptic physiology at the molecular level which has provided fundamental insights into the mechanisms underlying memory storage. The Foundation cited the researchers for “outstanding contributions to European neuroscience” as reported by the BBC. “Morris explained it was the ‘chemistry of memory’ that he and his colleagues had managed to illuminate.” The concept; “neurons that fire together wire together” has been an idea since it was first articulated by Donald Hebb in the 1940s. The work of these researchers and others has done much to explain the underlying mechanisms.
