The reference neuron model of memory is predicted on a molecular mechanism which allows a pattern of neural activity to be controlled by a single (reference) neuron. This control is established through simultaneous activity of a reference neuron and neurons whose activity reflects environmental input. A computer simulation of a system navigating in an environment is used to explore the capabilities provided by memory processing based on the reference neuron. Simple manipulation of the memory structures demonstrates cognition corresponding to very-short-, short-, and long-term memory.<>
