Our lab presented three posters at CAN meeting in Toronto.  Jakki presented her Master thesis showing that event-locked transient cholinergic signal in the medial prefrontal cortex has opposing effects on memory encoding depending on event types. Tag showed that the in...

THANK YOU FOR MANY ENTHUSIASTIC APPLICATIONS TO THIS POSITION.  THE POSITION HAS BEEN FILLED.

We are currently recruiting for one volunteer research assistant position. Our lab primarily works with rodents, investigating both the electrophysiological and cellular underp...

Justin's Master thesis has been published in eNeuro!  Read here for more details of his findings.

November 14, 2018

We had two posters this year. Justin showed that the ramping network activity in the mPFC signals the behavioural relevance of events. Tag presented that the inactivation of the lateral entorhinal cortex diminishes the ramping network activity in the mPFC. We were very...

During the past two years, the building where our lab is located has been under a major renovation.  And after three years since the original planning, we finally moved into a newly renovated lab at the end of December!  We foresee that this beautiful lab space will be...

We had two posters this year. Justin debuted in the SfN meeting with a poster showing that the enhanced activation of prefrontal excitatory neurons facilitates the formation of temporal stimulus association without costing accuracy and flexibility. Kaori’s poster showe...

Congratulations, Stephanie for successfully defending her Ph. D. thesis!  Her thesis provided novel insight into functional consequences of tau pathology and partial cell loss in the lateral entorhinal cortex on long-range circuit activity underlying associative learni...

We have another paper published in eLife which demonstrated the necessary of ripple-spindle couplings for systems consolidation of contextual fear memory. We are happy to contribute to this study by helping Frances Xia, a graduate student in the Frankland record and an...

The context in which an event occurs plays a large role in how the brain understands and responds to the event. While a key part of context is where we are, contexts can also change within the same space: different meetings are held at different times and with differen...
