Biography

How do neurons in the hippocampus and nucleus accumbens coordinate their activity to acquire and consolidate new memories?

Replay is thought to be a fundamental mechanism by which the brain selectively consolidates important recently-acquired memory traces and stores them to long-term memory. It occurs primarily during sleep and could be relevant to a number of neuropsychiatric disorders which share sleep disturbances as a common symptom. During replay, patterns of neural activity which arise during learning reoccur during subsequent sleep or quiet rest more often than would be predicted by chance. The evidence for replay is typically correlational, and it is not clear how it is ...
