The entorhinal-hippocampal circuit is thought to be responsible for the computational processes associated with spatial navigation and memory. Using both single-cell and large-scale electrophysiological recording methods, Dhara is examining activity patterns of spatial variable-encoding neuron populations in this region, with the goal of investigating the differential roles of sensory cues and self-motion information in the generation of spatial representations.
