Our goal is to elucidate the neural mechanisms underlying our ability to temporally organize memories. We focus on hippocampal, parahippocampal and prefrontal regions, as well as their functional interactions with associated structures. We use a multi-technique approach combining inactivation and electrophysiological recording techniques in rats performing complex memory tasks. We also apply these techniques to identify disrupted information processing in rodent models of cognitive disorders.
