Ryan A. Wirt and James M. Hyman (both Psychology) have published an article in Cell Reports. Over time, contextual memories become dependent on the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) for retrieval. Wirt and Hyman found that theta-mediated interactions between ACC and CA1 increase for remote recall. Communication from the ACC to CA1 modulates neural oscillations and unit spiking, leading to enhanced CA1 contextual information. Wirt is a graduate student.
