|Subject||"Cell Ensemble Mechanisms Underlying Memory Formation"|
Memories are not stored in isolation from other memories but are integrated into associative networks. At the same time, each memory has its own identity. In this seminar, I will show that sharing memory engram cells underlies the linkage between memories, while synapse-specific plasticity guarantees the identity and storage of individual memories. In addition, I will talk about how sleep contributes to the formation of memory engram.
