The hippocampus is central to our understanding of memory formation and retrieval. Its CA1 region is known for encoding contextual memory. Here, using a computational approach, which embeds existing physiological data, we propose a particular role of astrocytes in contextual memory retrieval. We provide a quantitative framework under which the astrocyte(More)
Many contemporary studies have shown that astrocytes play a significant role in modulating both short and long form of synaptic plasticity. There are very few experimental models which elucidate the role of astrocyte over Long-term Potentiation (LTP). Recently, Perea and Araque (Science 317:1083–1086, 2007) demonstrated a role of astrocytes in induction of(More)
Huxley revolutionized the field of neu-roscience when they provided a quantitative description of the squid axon action potential generation and propagation (Hodgkin and Huxley, 1952). The seminal article described how to recreate a biological phenomenon inside a computer using a mathematical model. Ever since, this quantitative approach has helped us in(More)
