Costs of memory: ideas and predictions

Journal of Theoretical Biology

Feb 26, 1999

R Dukas

Abstract

Studies on the ecology of animal memory have focused on the benefits of memory while implicitly assuming that there are costs as well. Here I discuss probable costs of memory by relying on knowledge from molecular biology and physiology, which indicates that the maintenance of accurate ...read more
