Adam Lab

We are interested in the mechanistic basis for cognitive processes, focusing on the function of hippocampal circuits in learning and memory. To this end, we are developing and applying cutting-edge technology to record and control brain activity using light. This all-optical technology is based on a combination of protein engineering and state-of-the-art microscopes and it allows us to record and manipulate the fine details of neuronal electrical activity at single-cell resolution, in a non-invasive manner. We use this all-optical electrophysiology approach for detailed mechanistic studies of the function and plasticity of hippocampal circuits during various behavioral tasks.
