Deciphering the enigma of memory persistence: how the brain stably stores information using dynamic networks and unstable neurons

Project description

Unlocking the secrets of memory in the brain

There are many unsolved mysteries of the brain, one of which is the storage and retrieval of memory. Using novel methods for optical imaging, large-scale data analysis, and circuit manipulation, the EU-funded DYNAMIC_ENGRAM project will examine the mechanisms that control the reorganisation of memory, bringing to light the factors that govern the circuit dynamics of memory representations. The project's work will uncover the way systems-level consolidation is achieved at the neural code level and how, in spite of ever-changing neuronal representation, stable memory is maintained in the long-term.
