Researchers Receive Grant to Model Human Memory and Learning for Machines

A multi-university study led by Professor Charan Ranganath aims to develop a computer model of how the brain forms, stores and retrieves complex memories.

The project — recently awarded a $7.5 million, five-year grant from the U.S. Department of Defense — could lead to an evolutionary leap in the development of artificial intelligence. It could also open new avenues for understanding Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and other memory disorders.
