Buffalo Lab

The Buffalo lab studies neural mechanisms of learning and memory. We use a combination of behavioral and electrophyisological techniques to understand how the medial temporal lobe supports declarative and relational memory. In addition to the work described elsewhere on this site, others in the lab have ongoing projects looking at neural representations of visual space, the effects of aging on memory, the role of the hippocampus in relational memory, and memory in human patients.

Fairhall Lab

The Fairhall Lab studies neural algorithms of information processing, ranging from the single cell to network level. Using a variety of mathematical and theoretical techniques, the lab collaborates with experimentalists on projects ranging from single cell sensory and motor signaling, to foraging strategies in mosquitos, to (of course) hippocampal representations.
