Stephanie's hard work finally bear fruit! By recording oscillatory neural activity in rats that mimicked brain abnormality in the earliest stage of Alzheimer's disease, she found this minor brain abnormality dramatically changed the way that brain regions communicate t...

Often we experience another individual’s perspective based on social cues without experiencing a specific event ourselves. For example, when we witness someone else undergo a frightening or painful ordeal, we may interpret their vocal or facial expressions such that we...

a bottle of wine or a box of chocolates, but the gift will differ on each occasion. Psyc...

Maryna successfully defended her Master thesis that uncovered unique feature selectivity of neurons in the lateral entorhinal cortex in rats. She completed this challenging project with one of the shortest period in the CSB graduate program.  We thank Drs. Arruda-Carva...

We had only one poster presentation this year, but it was a memorable one.  Maryna presented a summary of her research in the past three years that identified unique selectivity of neuron activity in the lateral entorhinal cortex.  This finding provides a new view on h...

May-July are time for us to showcased our latest research outcome in several conferences:

Canadian Association Neuroscience Meeting

Maryna presented on coding of single neurons in the lateral entorhinal cortex for content and context of experiences.

Stephanie pr...

 In our daily lives, stimuli are often predictive of negative or positive events that will occur some time later.  We found that enhancing the activity of neurons in the medial prefrontal cortex enables rats to detect the relevant stimulus relationships across temporal...
