overview We use optical techniques to measure and manipulate the activity of cells and circuits in the brain involved in the formation and recall of complex memories. We use mice as our animal model, and virtual reality as a platform for learning and memory related tasks. Our goal is to understand how the brain forms and recalls memories at the scale of synapses and dendrites through to the level of large ensembles of neurons and across brain regions.
