# How is memory accounted for in the NEF?

The Neurological Engineering Framework can be used to create systems that use memory in interesting ways. One system (Spaun) is able to memorize (and forget) lists much in the same way as humans do. Another system can learn tasks and apply the knowledge to subtasks using hierarchical reinforcement learning. Both of these tasks involve memory, but how is memory contained within the Neurological Engineering Framework?

• @NunoCalaim quite a bit! There's a task-specific memory module. Jan Gosmann is finishing his thesis on a detailed model of the hippocampus. This would be a lot easier to link to if I had finished updating the website, but for now you're going to have to type memory into the search box of the publications tab. – Seanny123 Jan 24 '18 at 16:43
