Why is memory so fickle?

Our lab uses brain dynamics to shed new light on this long-standing puzzle. Do slow fluctuations in neurochemical levels, for instance, shape how we learn and remember across the day and as we age? Do brain oscillations rhythmically shift us between acquiring new memories and recalling them? And, might these fluctuations in the brain and mind prepare us to better use our memories in our ever-changing surroundings.
