A newly discovered interplay of cells in one of the brain’s memory centers sheds light on how you recall your grocery list, where you laid your keys, and a host of important but fleeting daily tasks.


Scientists at Weill Cornell Medical College say their experiments with common goldfish are uncovering the secrets of a form of short-term recall known as “working memory.”
