I am investigating how the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex contribute to memory, and how they may be affected in neurodevelopmental disorders.

Research

Using sensory information about the world around us, we form maps of our spatial environment in order to navigate and remember contexts and locations. I am investigating how the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex contribute to this process, and how they may be affected in neurodevelopmental disorders. I am studying this in mice and rats, and also in a rat model of Fragile X Syndrome, the most common form of inherited learning disability, using in vivo electrophysiological recordings in the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex, while the animals perform various behavioural tasks.
