Earl Miller’s work on memory and executive control has gone well beyond the early influential accounts of “delay activity” in prefrontal cortex and has revealed new neuronal mechanisms for the formation of rules, plans, object categories, associations, and even the numerosity of items in the environment. He has established how prefrontal and parietal cortical areas communicate with each other to support top-down and bottom-up attention, and his work suggests mechanisms by which different items can be simultaneously held "in mind"..
