Neural stochasticity and criticality in memory replay

Project description

Avalanches may be a positive force of nature for memory consolidation

Forming, storing and retrieving memories is critical to our everyday lives, our personal and professional growth, our interpersonal relationships and our overall well-being. If these memory functions are missing, the consequences can be devastating as witnessed in dementia or other types of memory impairment or loss. The entire process of formation, storage and retrieval has complex spatial and temporal dimensions as memories move from one part of the brain to another during consolidation. The EU-funded BrownianReactivation project is combining experiments with mathematical modelling to investigate "activity avalanches" on the trail of memories from short-term (hippocampal) substrates to long-term (cortical) substrates.
