About Us


Our international consortium is composed of four teams, spanning from integrated behavior, to genomics, to computational modeling. We are working to test predictions from mathematical models about mental representations in cutting-edge experiments.

IRG 1

Extracellular electrophysiology during working memory tasks

IRG 2

Intracellular cell-type-specific recordings of the neurons involved in working memory

IRG 3

Transcriptomic profiling and molecular methods for neurons in prefrontal cortex

IRG 4

Integrative analysis and modeling bringing data together with mathematical theories of working memory
