Encoding of episodic memory in hippocampal rigid and plastic neurons

Project description

Encoding of episodic memory in hippocampal neurons

During brain development, the novel context is rapidly integrated and transformed into new memory, with early-life experiences encoded in the hippocampus, a brain region central to memory formation and recall. Recent studies have demonstrated that a subset of hippocampal neurons show more rigid, stable activation patterns across the behavioural domain, while others are more plastic. The EU-funded RigidPlasticNeurons project proposes to study the ensemble code in the developing mouse hippocampus using a combination of techniques paired with a behavioural navigation assay to measure in vivo the activities of neurons, with a focus on the functional properties of rigid and plastic neurons during development.
