Speaker: Dr. Esther Krook-Magnuson
The hippocampus is a well-studied structure, important for spatial navigation, learning, and memory. The hippocampus, however, still contains secrets and does not work in a vacuum. LINCs are a novel form of long-range inhibitory neuron in the hippocampus, which may be important for coordinating activity between the hippocampus and downstream structures. The cerebellum, while classically viewed as a motor structure, is being increasingly recognized for its impact on cognitive domains. Recent work has demonstrated that the cerebellum can influence the hippocampus, including place cells.
The event will be live streamed via VIMEO.
