The hippocampus: a predictive map?

Monday, 08 October 2018

An interview with Kim Stachenfeld, PhD, Research Scientist, DeepMind, conducted by April Cashin-Garbutt, MA (Cantab) Groundbreaking research has established that neurons in the hippocampus encode a spatial representation of the environment, but clinical observations and additional evidence indicate that this brain region can process non-spatial, episodic information. In the following interview, Kim Stachenfeld, a Research […]

Uncovering the logic of spinal circuits

Friday, 05 October 2018

An interview with Graziana Gatto, PhD, conducted by April Cashin-Garbutt, MA (Cantab) The somatosensory system plays a pivotal role in controlling movement via its reciprocal interactions with the spinal locomotor circuitry.┬áIn the inaugural lecture of the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre Emerging Neuroscientists Seminar Series (ENSS), Dr Graziana Gatto outlined her research detailing how dorsal spinal cord […]
