LAB NEWS

Our latest paper just came out in Nature Communications!

We’re very proud of this collaborative work between our teams of neuroscientists and data scientists. Briefly, in this paper we combined complex behavior, electrophysiology, and statistical machine learning methods to uncover nonspatial forms of sequential organization and coding in the hippocampus.

WELCOME TO OUR LAB WEBPAGE

The main goal of our lab is to understand how the brain supports our ability to temporally organize our memories, as well as how this capacity is affected in cognitive disorders. We use a multi-technique approach, combining inactivation and high-density electrophysiological recordings techniques, as rats perform complex memory tasks (comparable to those used in humans). At this time, our work primarily focuses on investigating the role of the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex in the memory for sequences of events, as well as their functional interactions with associated structures.
