  Good news!: The lab has recently been awarded a five-year Wellcome Investigator Award to pursue its study of complex space. The grant funds three postdocs and we will be looking at place, head direction and grid cells in multi-compartmented and three-dimensional spaces.

My lab is interested in how neurons encode complex space. The pictures above show (middle) a rat exploring a complex vertical space, and (right) the activity profile of a single spatial neuron, a grid cell. See Research for more info about what we are interested in.
