4 YEAR PhD IN NEUROSCIENCE

Neil Burgess

Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, UCL

Neural networks and hippocampus

My main current research interests are:

1. Neural network modelling of the hippocampal representation of spatial location in rats and humans.

2. Neuropsychological and functional neuroimaging investigation of spatial and episodic memory using virtual reality.

AVAILABLE PROJECTS

Developing a computational model of the temporal coding of location by hippocampal place cells.
