Researchers at Inserm are the first to have described the behaviour and language of the neurons responsible for memory consolidation during sleep. They have shown that, far from being organized in a static and linear way as was previously thought, neurons change their role over time, and that information pathways continually change. The research is reported in Science Advances.
