Mayank Mehta

The Mehta lab is using a combination of behavioral, neural ensemble electrophysiology and sophisticated computational methods to understand how the brain perceives, understands and remembers information. The focus of the laboratory is on understanding the contribution of hippocampal cellular and circuit mechanisms, and cortico-hippocampal interaction, to learning and memory.
