The Ruth K. Broad Foundation Seminar Series on Neurobiology and Disease

Our lab focuses on elucidating the neural basis of spatial cognition, navigation, and spatial memory in the mammalian hippocampal formation - using bats as a novel animal model that we pioneered. Out study species, the Egyptian fruit bat, is a large bat species weighing ~150-180 gr, which allows the bat to carry wireless neural telemetry and neuro-logging devices, optogenetic stimulators, miniaturized GPS systems, and more - all in flight.
