A Computational Model of Basal Ganglia and its Role in Memory Retrieval in Rewarded Visual Memory Tasks

Abstract

Visual working memory (WM) tasks involve a network of cortical areas such as inferotemporal, medial temporal and prefrontal cortices. We suggest here to investigate the role of the basal ganglia (BG) in the learning of delayed rewarded tasks through the selective gating of thalamocortical loops. We designed a computational model of the visual loop linking… (More)
