How do we orient ourselves in space? We focus a lot of our work on the head-direction system, the "brain's compass". Our main questions are: how is the system built to show one and only needle? How do these cells influence activity of downstream structures, for example the hippocampus?
We study brain activity during sleep because, first and foremost, it's quite beautiful! But the main reasons is that sleep is a window on the cognition
Learning & Memory
We use cutting-edge electrophysiological techniques to monitor the activity of neuronal populations in vivo.
