Consolidation

Neuronal patterns and networks that organize them become functional for learning through consolidation, which can result from various kinds of learning events, including both those that we categorize as foundational skill building and sense making, which we define in cognitive terms.

Consolidation occurs over multiple timescales and may continue long after a learning event. Consolidation may refer to automatic processes operating on a neural level or to cognitive reorganization on a macro scale.
