Visit from Sachin Deshmukh

The lab was happy to welcome our friend, Sachin Deshmukh, for a visit after the SfN meeting in October. Sachin presented a talk entitled, “Objects, space, and memory: how the hippocampal cognitive map comes together”. The website for Sachin’s lab can be found here: http://www.cns.iisc.ernet.in/sachin/
