My lab is interested in how neurons encode complex space. We study the activity of single neurons in the hippocampus and in those regions that project to it, in order to understand what environmental information the cells use to form their map of space. We study rats and mice, and our collaborators extend those findings into studies in humans.
The lab is part of a bigger group of researchers known as the Institute of Behavioural Neuroscience (IBN), which I established in order to develop the biological profile of the department and bring psychology and neuroscience closer together
