Research topic: Spiking network mechanisms underlying cognition

Research methods:  Our unique approach combines high density extracellular recordings with multi-site/multi-color electrical/optogenetic/pharmacologic manipulations, in freely-moving rodents that perform cognitive tasks. Our work involves developing behavioral tasks, engineering (molecular biology, optics, and electronics), data analysis (algorithmic design, multivariate signal processing), and modeling (single-cell and network).

Main projects in the lab include:

  1. Spiking network mechanisms underlying short term memory
  2. Spiking network mechanisms underlying phase precession
