Network Properties of the Entorhinal/Dentate Gyrus and CA3 Region

Principal Investigator: Michela Gallagher, Ph.D.

The goal of this study to examine the properties of the network that includes the entorhinal cortex/dentate gyrus and the CA3 region of the medial temporal lobe. Several aspects of this network are under examination, including the impact of sparse encoding. The primary goal is to examine relationship of alterations within this network to differences in episodic memory performance in age-unimpaired rodents, compared to those that are age-impaired.
