4 YEAR PhD IN NEUROSCIENCE
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.
Developing a computational model of the temporal coding of location by hippocampal place cells.
