CNLM Colloquium Series

Join the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory (CNLM) for a hybrid event featuring Dr. Laura Colgin, professor of neuroscience at the University of Texas at Austin. This event will be held in-person in the Herklotz Conference Center and virtually via Zoom.

Hippocampal place cell responses to spatial and non-spatial information

Description:

The hippocampus is a key brain network for episodic memory. Place cells are neurons in the hippocampus that fire in specific spatial locations known as place fields. This spatially selective firing is thought to code the “where” component of episodic memory. Yet, episodic memories contain nonspatial information also. This talk will present results showing how different populations of hippocampal place cells respond to nonspatial aspects of an experience, such as social stimuli or motivational context. The results may help explain how the hippocampus integrates different aspects of an experience into a coherent episodic memory.
