The rodent hippocampus is a wonderful model for memory representations in the mammalian brain. The readout from place cells shows these representations are both robust and adaptable - two properties that are often in conflict. In recently published work we have shown how synaptic plasticity and neuromodulation by acetylcholine can both alter inhibitory synaptic networks to allow reliable memory representations that also adapt when required to.
