                  In the last 20 years, there have been significant advances in the molecular, cellular, and systems mechanisms underlying the storage of single memories. Real-world memory, however, involves the integration of multiple memories across time, with one memory affecting how others are processed and stored. Using a number of techniques including in vivo calcium imaging (with head-mounted fluorescent microscopes in freely behaving mice), the TetTag transgenic system, optogenetics, electrophysiology, 2-photon microscopy and novel behavioral designs, we showed that memory allocation mechanisms can trigger increases in excitability that then affect both the allocation and strength of subsequent memories, thus providing a mechanism that links memories across time.
