Welcome to the Manns Lab

Our research focuses on how the hippocampus and associated brain regions participate in the processes that enable our day to day memories. The study of memory benefits greatly from the close homology of the hippocampus across the mammalian taxon, and we study memory by pursuing electrophysiological recordings in rats as they perform memory tasks.

In particular, we are interested in the fundamental neurobiological computations arising from the circuitry of the hippocampus and parahippocampal region--the ways in which the anatomy and physiology of the hippocampus enact changes on incoming information and the ways in which this altered information is stored in the brain.
