What brain processes underlie memory consolidation? Here, scientists from the MRC BNDU (University of Oxford, UK) test the hypothesis that, in the mouse hippocampus, reactivation of space-representing cell assemblies during sleep/rest promotes the later reinstatement of those assemblies during context re-exposure.
