Synaptopathies Seminar Series - 'Cell type and input specificity in ventral circuitry'


Wolfson Lecture Theatre | Institute of Neurology (link Map)
Queen Square House | Queen Square | London | WC1N 3BG | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

Speaker: Dr Andrew Macaskill

Part of the Department of Clinical & Experimental Epilepsy, Institute of Neurology Synaptopathies Seminar Series

In my talk, I will first present published work that investigates the circuity of the nucleus accumbens - with a focus on its connectivity with the hippocampus and amygdala – to show how experience can alter circuit connectivity in a very specific manner. I will then outline ongoing work in my lab that aims to tease apart some unexpected complexity of the hippocampal circuit using a combination of behavioural tasks and transgenic, optogenetic, imaging and electrophysiological approaches.
