Memory encoding occurs rapidly, but the consolidation of memory in the neocortex has long been held to be a more gradual process. We now report, however, that systems consolidation can occur extremely quickly if an associative “schema” into which new information is incorporated has previously been created. In experiments using a hippocampal-dependent paired-associate task for rats, the memory of flavor-place associations became persistent over time as a putative neocortical schema gradually… 
Schema-Dependent Gene Activation and Memory Encoding in Neocortex
TLDR
It is found that the hippocampal-dependent learning of new paired associates is associated with a striking up-regulation of immediate early genes in the prelimbic region of the medial prefrontal cortex, and that pharmacological interventions targeted at that area can prevent both new learning and the recall of remotely and even recently consolidated information.
Constructing knowledge: semantic memories in mice
TLDR
This work does not have evidence for the necessity of the medial prefrontal cortex in retrieval of the abstracted memory in the Object Space task, and more recent theories of systems consolidation would predict otherwise.
Hippocampal-neocortical interactions in memory formation, consolidation, and reconsolidation.
This review, focusing on work using animals, updates a theoretical approach whose aim is to translate neuropsychological ideas about the psychological and anatomical organization of memory into the
Cellular and Systems Consolidation of Declarative Memory
TLDR
This chapter provides an overview of both cellular and systems consolidation and how they interact, and will discuss effects of novelty, sleep and previous knowledge on consolidation.
Schema and Motor-Memory Consolidation
TLDR
This work employed a unique manipulation of a motor-sequence-learning paradigm to examine the effect of experimentally acquired memory on the learning of new motor information and demonstrates that new information is rapidly integrated into memory when practice occurs in a framework that is compatible with the previously acquired memory.
Memory consolidation.
TLDR
System consolidation is the process by which the hippocampus guides the reorganization of the information stored in the neocortex such that it eventually becomes independent of the hippocampus.
A Neural Model of Schemas and Memory Consolidation
TLDR
A biologically plausible neural network model of schema consolidation that studies several brain areas and their interactions provides a basis for creating context-dependent memories while preventing catastrophic forgetting in artificial neural networks.
Memory Consolidation 21
TLDR
The major theories of consol-idation are reviewed—beginning with the still-relevant account proposed by Müller and Pilzecker (1900)—and a variety of recent developments in what has become a rapidly evolving concept are considered.
Engrams and circuits crucial for systems consolidation of a memory
TLDR
It is found that neocortical prefrontal memory engram cells, which are critical for remote contextual fear memory, were rapidly generated during initial learning through inputs from both the hippocampal–entorhinal cortex network and the basolateral amygdala.

Declarative memory consolidation in humans: a prospective functional magnetic resonance imaging study.
TLDR
Over the course of the entire study, hippocampal activity for correct confident recognition continued to decrease, whereas activity in a ventral medial prefrontal region increased, which may prompt a revision of classical consolidation theory, incorporating a transfer of putative linking nodes from hippocampal to prelimbic prefrontal areas.

TLDR
A heated debate has been revitalized on whether memories become labile and must undergo some form of renewed consolidation every time they are activated, and on fundamental issues concerning the nature of the memory trace, its maturation, persistence, retrievability, and modifiability.

Systems Consolidation Requires Postlearning Activation of NMDA Receptors in the Medial Prefrontal Cortex in Trace Eyeblink Conditioning
TLDR
Successful establishment of remotely acquired memory requires activation of NMDA receptors in the mPFC during at least the initial week of the postlearning period, suggesting NMDA receptor-dependent processes may mediate the maturation of neocortical networks that underlies permanent memory storage and serve as a way to reorganize memory circuitry to the neocortex-dependent form.
Why there are complementary learning systems in the hippocampus and neocortex: insights from the successes and failures of connectionist models of learning and memory.
TLDR
The account presented here suggests that memories are first stored via synaptic changes in the hippocampal system, that these changes support reinstatement of recent memories in the neocortex, that neocortical synapses change a little on each reinstatement, and that remote memory is based on accumulated neocorticals changes.
The hippocampal memory indexing theory.
TLDR
It is asserted that the reactivation of the stored hippocampal memory index will serve to also reactivate the associated unique array of neocortical areas and thus will result in a memorial experience.

TLDR
The role of the hippocampus is considered, which is needed temporarily to bind together distributed sites in neocortex that together represent a whole memory.
Sites of Neocortical Reorganization Critical for Remote Spatial Memory
TLDR
Consolidation of spatial memory requires a time-dependent hippocampal-cortical dialogue, ultimately enabling widespread cortical networks to mediate effortful recall and use of cortically stored remote memories independently.
