The hippocampus is the key brain area that processes spatial and contextual information and is therefore crucial for navigation and episodic memory. I am interested in how the hippocampus acquires its function through the structural and biophysical organization of cells and local networks. A special interest of me lies in the ability of hippocampus to grow and integrate new granule cells into its network throughout life and the function of this rare feature.
