The flexible coordination of hippocampal spiking activity in rhythms
During successful computation, brain regions must have an efficient method for filtering information from multiple sources and coordinating communication with other regions. A great system for examining this is the hippocampus, a brain structure critical for learning and memory that must integrate and associate various streams of information. Research conducted by Dr. Lara Maria Rangel suggests that successful processing of information in the hippocampus during an associative memory task is dependent on coordinated oscillatory activity, and more specifically the flexible engagement of hippocampal cells in distinct rhythmic circuits.
About Dr. Lara Rangel
Dr. Rangel is a systems neuroscientist, whose work characterizes the temporal dynamics of cross-regional oscillatory interactions and the flexible participation of neurons in local rhythmic networks during behavior.
This year, the series will be held in a virtual format with some speakers presenting in-person as well. We will keep registered participants updated on the possibility of an in-person event as the situation with COVID-19 evolves.
