SWC Seminar: Cellular and circuit mechanisms for spatial computation


Ground Floor Lecture Theatre (link Map)
Sainsbury Wellcome Centre | 25 Howland Street | London | W1T 4JG | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

Speaker: Professor Matthew Nolan, University of Edinburgh

How do cells of the brain implement computations important for cognition? The well characterised spatial firing of grid cells and other neurons in the medial entorhinal cortex (MEC) make this structure an excellent model for investigation of cognitive circuitry. However, the mechanisms by which grid and other spatial codes are established and their roles in behaviour are unclear.

I will discuss experiments that investigate molecularly defined cell types in the medial entorhinal cortex, their contribution to real world and virtual behaviours, and principles for their organisation into functional circuits.
