Functional interaction between a prefrontal and a thalamic nucleus for the consolidation of spatial memories

Project description

Insight into memory consolidation

Conversion of events into long-lasting memory, a process known as memory consolidation, implicates many regions of the brain. Recent evidence indicates that an interplay between the laterodorsal (LD) nucleus of the thalamus and the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) is central to memory consolidation. Scientists of the EU-funded METHA project plan to investigate the LD-ACC circuit and in particular how neurons in these regions process acquired information during the training to consolidate and recall them at a later time. Results will provide a better understanding of memory and related pathologies such as post-traumatic stress disorder and dementia.
