  • Sleep replay of awake experience in the cortex and hippocampus has been proposed to be involved in memory consolidation. [...] Key Method Here we studied multicell spiking patterns in both the visual cortex and hippocampus during slow-wave sleep in rats. We found that spiking patterns not only in the cortex but also in the hippocampus were organized into frames, defined as periods of stepwise increase in neuronal population activity. The multicell firing sequences evoked by awake experience were replayed during…Expand Abstract
