 Project objective

Spontaneous activity accounts for most of what the brain does and is likely to be key for information processing in the brain, but its function is still quite mysterious. Two key spontaneous activity processes are the Default Mode Network, a set of areas that are most markedly connected and active during behavioural idleness, and memory replay, the spontaneous reactivation of neural patterns occurring during experience. I will test the hypothesis that the DMN plays a key role in memory replay processes. This theory, if confirmed, would bring important conceptual advances: to memory studies, as it would provide a mechanism supporting the formation and consolidation of complex memory representations. To the Default Mode Network field, as replay can be used as the “Rosetta Stone” to decipher the computations the DMN performs, moving beyond the connectivity, dynamics, and cognitive correlates, typical focus of DMN research. I will explore this theory by an experimental study of spontaneous neural activity over the whole mouse cortex, going from large field-of-view 2-photon imaging and high-volume electrophysiology for the single neuron scale, to voltage sensitive imaging and electrocorticography, to resting state fMRI, in animals running memory tasks. I will characterize the network dynamics and the encoding and replay of memories by quantifying conveyed information and assessing its nature (e.g. about simple percepts vs. complex events, remote vs. memories). I will also measure critical behaviour in these networks, and test whether neuronal avalanches, that occur in spontaneous activity, play a role in conveying information across distant brain areas. I will model the consequences of these mechanisms for computation by formulating a machine learning based model of memory formation and consolidation, endowing a deep network with critical properties and memory replay.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "REPLAY_DMN" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email (fabio@fabiodisconzi.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
