The brain frequently needs to store information for short periods. In vision, this means that the perceptual correlate of a stimulus has to be maintained temporally once the stimulus has been removed from the visual scene. However, it is not known how the visual system transfers sensory information into a memory component. Here, the authors identify a neural correlate of working memory in the monkey (Macaca mulatta) primary visual cortex (V1). The authors propose that this component may link sensory activity with memory activity.
