Rapid hippocampal plasticity supports motor sequence learning

Recent evidence suggests that gains in performance observed while humans learn a novel motor sequence occur during the periods of quiet rest (micro-offline gains, MOGs). This phenomenon is reminiscent of memory replay observed in the hippocampus during spatial learning in rodents. In my talk I will present evidence from a multimodal MRI study suggesting that the hippocampal system supports the production of MOGs.
