Theta Rhythm: Temporal Glue for Episodic Memory

Curr Biol. 2017 Oct 23;27(20):R1110-R1112. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2017.08.048.


The low frequency theta rhythm is thought to promote the formation of long-term multimodal memories in the hippocampus by orchestrating input from multiple cortical sources. New research has demonstrated a causal association between the timing of experimentally induced theta rhythms and episodic memory formation in humans.
