Welcome to the website of the Neuronal Oscillations Group
Our group is interested in the cellular basis of information processing in the mammalian brain.
The cover of Neuron, volume 77, was devoted to our recent paper
Our ambition is to elucidate the neural code for memory, i.e. how information is encoded, stored and retrieved in neuronal networks of the brain.
To that end, we study the rules of synaptic plasticity at the cellular and network levels during physiologically relevant network activity using electrophysiology, imaging techniques and optogenetic approaches.
Our objectives are:
1. To understand the cellular basis for generation and propagation of network oscillations in the hippocampus and thalamocortical networks.
2. To elucidate the rules for induction of synaptic plasticity during such network oscillations during development and in the adult.
3. To gain insight into how information can be stored and retrieved as changes of synaptic weights in those network.
