Congratulations to Ayomide Akinsooto on her graduation from UT Austin!

Ayomide completed a degree in Biology and received a College of Natural Sciences Graduates of Distinction award.  Congratulations, Ayomide!  Ayomide will continue in her role as a valuable member of our research team as she prepares her medical school applications.

Sean’s and John’s new paper showing that grid cell co-activity patterns remain stable during overnight sleep and reflect grid field overlap from waking behaviors is now out in Nature Neuroscience! A complementary study from the Mosers’ group was published in the same issue.

Ernie’s new paper showing that CA3 place cells that fired in a novel environment are preferentially reactivated during sleep is out in Hippocampus.

John and Laura publish a Spotlight in Neuron about an exciting new paper from the Ulanovsky group.

The highlighted paper by Eliav and colleagues shows modulation of spike times by the phase of irregular fluctuations in bat hippocampal local field potentials:

Alex and Laura publish a review entitled “Gamma oscillations in cognitive disorders”.

Congratulations to Dr. Brian Gereke!

On May 8, 2018, Brian Gereke successfully defended his PhD dissertation entitled, “Experience-dependent trends in hippocampal rhythms”.  Brian is now at UC Berkeley, where he accepted a Postdoctoral Researcher position in Kristofer Bouchard’s lab.  Congratulations, Brian!

Congratulations to Dr. Sean Trettel!

On December 4, 2017, Sean Trettel successfully defended his PhD dissertation entitled, “Grid cell co-activity patterns remain stable across different behavioral states and experiences”.  Sean has now moved on to a Postdoctoral Researcher position in Rebecca Burwell’s lab at Brown University.  Congratulations, Sean!

Brian’s new paper reporting experience-dependent changes in theta and gamma rhythms in freely behaving mice is published in Journal of Neurophysiology.

John’s new paper that evaluates methods to detect coordinated replay in grid cells and place cells is published in Frontiers in Systems Neuroscience.

Congratulations to Devin Wehle on his graduation from UT Austin!

Devin received a Bachelor of Science and Arts in Neuroscience with Honors.  He will pursue his PhD in Neuroscience at the University of Washington, where he was awarded a prestigious ARCS fellowship.
