Functions of hippocampus and entorhinal cortex studied with viral vectors

Modern brain imaging methods have contributed enormously to contemporary knowledge about the particular brain systems involved in specific cognitive functions. Unfortunately, mechanistic insights have lagged behind, largely because brain mapping in humans lacks the spatial resolution required to...

Entorhinal grid cells and hippocampal memory

More than 30 years of research have pointed to the hippocampus as a key component of the brain's circuit for spatial representation. Although place-specific firing is undoubtedly the most conspicuous behavioural correlate of hippocampal principal neurons, hippocampal neurons also respond to a va...

Metabolic scaling in teleosts

Metabolic scaling is a widely recognised problem in biology. The underlying causes for the disproportionate relationship between the metabolic rate of an organism and its body size have long puzzled scientists, and continue to be controversial. In recent years this fascinating subject has been tr...
