Dissecting Learning and Memory!

posterior parietal cortex

Exploring working mechanisms for working memory

Sustained neural activity in the cortex is thought to be the cellular mechanism of working-/short-term memory, but underlying mechanisms is still unclear. By focusing on the PPC-PFC circuit and utilizing several innovative molecular / viral vector tools, imaging, and slice physiology techniques, we would like to identify behaviorally-relevant PPC-PFC synapses and study their role in decision making behaviors.
