In the Keinath lab, we investigate the cognitive and neural bases of episodic memory and navigation. We take an eclectic approach, using techniques ranging from high-yield miniscope calcium imaging in mice, immersive virtual reality experiments in humans, to computational modeling of our findings. If you’re interested in joining the lab, please reach out!
