Neural mechanism for the magical number 4: Competitive interactions and nonlinear oscillation

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (1):151-152 (2001)
Abstract
The aim of our commentary is to strengthen Cowan's proposal for an inherent capacity limitation in STM by suggesting a neurobiological mechanism based on competitive networks and nonlinear oscillations that avoids some of the shortcomings of the scheme discussed in the target article (Lisman & Idiart 1995).
