Recording and Reproduction of Pattern Memory Trace in EEG by Direct Electrical Stimulation of Brain Cortex

Authors: Andrey G. Shapkin, Michael V. Taborov, Yuriy G. Shapkin

This study demonstrates the capability of external signal recording into memory and the reproduction of memory trace of this pattern in EEG by direct AC electrical stimulation of rat cerebral cortex. Additionally, we examine shifts of the DC potential level related to these phenomena. We show that in the course of memory trace reproduction, consecutive phases of engram activation and relaxation are registered and accompanied by corresponding negative and positive DC shifts. The observed electrophysiological changes may reflect consecutive activation and inhibition phases of neural ensembles participating in engram formation.
