Neuroscience Program Seminars

In this seminar I will discuss our recent work aimed at understaning how behaviorally meaningful stimuli are encoded within ensembles of hippocampal neurons, and how these representations are modified by learning. Specifically, I will present work on how the mouse dentate gyrus discriminates olfactory information through learning, and how the the ventral hippocampus is organized to encode emotionally relevent stimuli.
