Our sense of place is intrinsically tied to our ability to form memories about events that occur to us, and to imagine ourselves in the future. The hippocampus and entorhinal cortex, the neural machinery that enables these functions are, in a very real way, central to our sense of “self”.
In this talk, I will introduce the questions and techniques my lab uses to probe brain function, and our ongoing work in model systems of memory dysfunction such as the Ts65Dn mouse model of Down Syndrome and the Maternal Immune Activation model of Schizotypy/Autism spectrum disorder.
