The Synchronicity of Memory

The Synchronicity of Memory

What makes the image on the left so interesting is it shows four individual neurons (numbered circles) helping to form a memory. Cooler colors—indigo to turquoise—indicate background or low neuronal activity; warmer colors—yellow to red—indicate high neuronal activity. This process of firing in unison, called neuronal synchronization, encodes the memory. These fascinating images are the first to show an association between neuronal burst synchronization and hippocampus-dependent memory formation. References:[1] Induction of activity synchronization among primed hippocampal neurons out of random dynamics is key for trace memory formation and retrieval.
