Research interests

We use both animal models and human volunteers to study how memories are formed and stored in the brain. We concentrate on the role of the hippocampus as an orchestrator of relational learning in the mammalian brain. More specifically, we study changes in the activity of single neurons and groups of thousands of neurons, and how these relate to adaptation of behavior. We are also interested in the connection between bodily rhythms like respiration and heartbeat and electrophysiological oscillations of the brain, and how this connection then regulates learning. In our research we make use of closed-loop setups where we monitor behavioral, bodily and brain state in real-time and use the information to control experimental manipulations.
