     Calculations  presented  in  L. Ingber and P.L. Nunez, Phys.
Rev. E 51, 5074  (1995)  detailed  the  evolution  of  short-term
memory  in  the  neocortex, supporting the empirical 7+-2 rule of
constraints on the capacity  of  neocortical  processing.   These
results  are given further support when other recent models of 40
Hz subcycles of low-frequency oscillations are considered.
