Our brains must maintain a representation of the world over a period of time much longer than the typical lifetime of the biological components producing that representation. How does the brain handle this challenge at the synaptic level? In this podcast, Editor-in-Chief Bill Yates talks with Dan Acker about his recent study that tackled this question. Listen to learn about the importance of synaptic strength, modeling memory processes, and applications for machine learning!
