Research Interests
The focus of my research is disentangling the functional and neural mechanisms of CA1 hippocampal connections. My PhD project include magnetic resonance imaging studies in combination with electrical stimulation and electrophysiological recordings in the hippocampus, looking at the effects of LTP in CA1; I am actually focused on the study of EPSP-to-PS potentiation in contralateral CA1. I’m also interested in duplicating synaptic-tagging findings on an MRI environment.
