Neural circuit mechanisms for spatial computation

Supervisors: Matthew Nolan, Mark van Rossum

Project description:

A sense of location is essential for planning where we want to go, and is a critical component of episodic memory. This project will address the neural circuit mechanisms used by our brains to estimate location, with a focus on roles of molecularly defined populations of neurons in the medial entorhinal cortex.
