Tracking and decoding individual memories across the brain from creation to long-term storing

Project description

Mapping memory in the brain

Embedded deep into the temporal lobe, the hippocampus plays an important role in memory. It encodes ‘memory traces’ of our experiences and ‘replays’ them when we sleep. This is essential for memory consolidation. To shed light on how this works, the EU-funded FUS-REPLAY project will explore the whole-brain correlates of hippocampal replay. It will use functional ultrasound to monitor subtle changes in cerebral blood flow over the whole brain at a resolution of up to tens of milliseconds, in combination with high-density electrophysiology. The project will establish ‘brain maps’ associated with hippocampal replay and learn how to decode a specific memory trace from these maps. It will also study how emotional valence affects these maps.
