Learning about facts and events, including spatial maps, is thought to occur in two stages. First, the hippocampus is thought to rapidly learn information during behavior and form a memory trace via the NMDA -dependent synaptic plasticity. Then, during subsequent period of sleep this memory trace is thought to be consolidated from the hippocampus to the neocortex. During behavior and sleep, the cortico-hippocampal activity shows distinct rhythms. I will describe our experimental and computational investigations towards understanding this process.
