Eichenlaub et al. show that in the motor cortex of brain-computer interface trial
participants, the firing rate patterns corresponding to a previously learned motor
sequence are replayed during rest. These findings provide direct evidence of...

Abstract. Mood-congruent memory bias is a critical characteristic of depression, but the underlying neural mechanism is largely unknown. Negative memory schema
Martin DreslerNegative memory schemas and mood-congruent memory bias are critical characteristics of major depression. New study by @LeonoreBovy supports previous causal evidence for a role of the mPFC in schema processing and suggests a role of the mPFC in memory bias.
Delta waves are moments of widespread cortical silence that alternate with active states during slow-wave sleep. However, upon closer examination, single neuronal action potentials can be detected during delta waves. Todorova and Zugaro sought to...
Martin DreslerSleep delta waves are not periods of complete silence but harbor cortical computations related to memory consolidation

Sleep plays a critical role in memory consolidation, however, the exact role that sleep and its effects on neural network dynamics play in this process is still unclear. Here, we combine computational and experimental approaches to study the...
Martin DreslerSleep plays an active role in memory consolidation by switching the hippocampal network from rate-based to phase-based information representation.
