Today, I want to introduce a relatively short, but interesting and suggestive paper. Fast-Forward Playback of Recent Memory Sequences in Prefrontal Cortex During Sleep Euston DR, Tatsuno M, McNaughton BL. This paper shows that mPFC neuronal activity was replayed during sleep following task period, and this replay was task dependent. In addition, it is temporally […]

Today, I pick up the following paper (because of my personal reflection). Preplay of future place cell sequences by hippocampal cellular assemblies. Dragoi G, Tonegawa S. Temporal sequences of place cell firing are observed during awake quiescence and slow-wave sleep following exploring behaviors. This is called “replay”. This paper shows that such temporal sequences are […]

This is my first post to this blog. I’ll post brief reviews about papers which interest me. The first paper is Awake replay of remote experiences in the hippocampus. Karlsson MP, Frank LM. 2009, Nat Neurosci. Replay events of place cells firing sequences are separated in two categories; one occurs during experience, and the other […]
