Biography

I am interested in memory in the everyday sense the word, how the brain remembers, in particular how processing by neural circuits alters those circuits so that information is encoded, stored, and then later retrieved in appropriate circumstances. We use "high density recording" techniques to sample neuronal activity from parts of the brain that are needed for to perform a particular cognitive function, and attempt to decode the signal to understand how these required neural networks represent information in memory and guide behavior. The lab focuses on the hippocampus, the prefrontal cortex, and their related networks that are crucial for memory and cognition.
