We are a team with backgrounds in neuroscience, cognitive science, physics, and engineering, and welcome new members from these and other fields who are deeply curious about how the mind works.

How do we learn, remember, imagine, navigate, solve, and decide things? We study the neural basis of memory and cognition, focusing on the role of the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex and their interactions with other brain regions. Our work involves studying these processes in animals using a range of state-of-the-art systems neuroscience techniques. These techniques include:

- large-scale extracellular recording and imaging

- real-time processing and brain-machine interfaces

- intracellular recording

- optogenetics

- behavioral tasks in freely moving animals and virtual reality

- analysis of neural population data

- modeling (in collaboration with theoretical/computational neuroscience groups)
