Pathogen induces oxygenation of the gut


Neuronal assembly dynamics in the brain Sharp-wave ripples are a form of neuronal activity pattern observed in the hippocampus that may play a role in memory consolidation. To investigate this phenomenon, Malvache et al. simultaneously imaged calcium dynamics in multiple hippocampal neurons of live mice. A category of neurons called place cells became active when mice ran on a treadmill. When the mice paused, fast replay events occurred that recalled the sequence of cell activations while the mice were running, and these coincided with the sharp-wave ripples. Reactivation periods in which different assemblies of cells took part were also observed. Imaging of the mice indicated that patches of neurons might cooperate to produce fragments of the ripple events. —PRS
