Abstract: Brain activity during sleep is characterized by circuit-specific oscillations, including slow waves, spindles and theta, that are nested in thalamocortical or hippocampus networks. A major challenge is to determine the neural mechanisms underlying these oscillations and their functional implications. In this lecture, I will summarize our most recent studies investigating the role of the thalamus and the hippocampus in the temporal and spatial organization of low frequency oscillations including slow waves and theta rhythms, respectively, as well as their functional implication in sleep structure and functions.
