  • Parallel detection of theta and respiration-coupled oscillations throughout the mouse brain

    04/24/2018
    We find that respiration-coupled oscillations can be detected in parallel with theta in several neocortical regions, from prefrontal to visual areas, and also in subcortical structures such as the thalamus, amygdala and ventral hippocampus.
  • Characterizing speed cells in the rat hippocampus

    11/13/2018
    Here we investigated speed-correlated firing in the hippocampus. We show that CA1 has speed cells that are stable across contexts, position in space, and time.
  • Recording Day and Night: Advice for New Investigators in the Sleep and Memory Field

    09/18/2018
    The investigation of the sleep-dependent mechanisms of memory processing and consolidation is largely based on the electrophysiological recording of action potentials (spikes), local field potentials (LFPs), and muscle activity from freely behaving rodents.
  • Ventral hippocampal OLM cells control type 2 theta oscillations and response to predator odor.

    09/10/2018
    Here, we show that optogenetic activation of oriens-lacunosum moleculare (OLM) interneurons in the ventral hippocampus drives type 2 theta. Moreover, we found that type 2 theta generation is associated with increased risk-taking behavior in response to predator odor.
  • OLMa2 cells bidirectionally modulate learning

    08/03/2018
    Here we set out to determine whether selective modulation of OLMa2 cells in the intermediate CA1 affects learning and memory in vivo.
  • Theta-Gamma Cross-Frequency Analyses (Hippocampus)

    07/23/2018
    We found a canonical correlation linking speech connectedness and i) functional as well as developmentally relevant structural brain markers (degree centrality from resting state functional imaging and cortical gyrification index) ii) psychometric evaluation of thought disorder iii) aspects of cognitive performance (processing...
  • Respiration-Entrained Brain Rhythms Are Global but Often Overlooked

    04/20/2018
    We summarize recent evidence showing that nasal respiration entrains oscillations at the same frequency as breathing in several regions of the rodent brain.
