Coordinated rhythmic neuronal activity is an operational facet of the nervous system that may underlie such basic psychological processes such as perception, attention, and memory. Our lab studies the neurophysiological mechanisms and the role of such activity in medial temporal lobe memory regions of the brain. Our research is relevant to the encoding, consolidation and recall of information taking place in this area and is also relevant to neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and Epilepsy.
The aim of this course is to provide students with an introduction to the neural basis of learning and memory. The course begins with a review of the historical background, experimental methods, and principles of neurobiology. Learning and memory are then analyzed at different levels of biological organization, including molecular, cellular, neural circuit, neural system, and behavioral levels. Prerequisite: PSYCO 275.

A survey of theory, methods, and analysis of various neurophysiological techniques utilized in brain-behaviour research. The dynamics of in vivo recordings will be extensively covered. Prerequisites: One of PSYCO 371, 375, 377 or PMCOL 371. [Faculty of Science]Winter Term 2022
