Writing and consolidating memories
I will discuss recent, mostly unpublished work from our lab that provides evidence for the existence of two temporally defined time windows to regulate memories after learning. During the first time window new information can be added to memories, whereas during the second time window memories are long-term consolidated. I will discuss circuit, cellular and molecular mechanisms that control these critical processes in learning and memory.
