Summary

The main research interest in my laboratory is to decipher brain mechanisms sub serving learning and memory, and how they are altered in cognitive pathology. We aim at understanding how the neuronal architecture and connectivity constrain the mesoscopic network activity and influences the flow and storage of information in neuronal circuits in human cognitive-related disorders.
