Research study using fMRI and representational similarity analysis to examine the impact of interference on the representation of visual content in the ventral visual processing stream and perirhinal cortex. We find that representations in the perirhinal cortex, but not early ventral visual processing areas, are resistant to interference during working me...

Research article on the use of EEG, decoding and image reconstruction to provide insight into the representation of words presented visually. Read more here.

Research article using fMRI and machine learning to demonstrate that long-term memory sequence representations in the hippocampus contain temporal duration information in conjunction with event information. A write-up of the work can be found here.

Congratulations to Sath for receiving the University of Toronto Scarborough Graduate Research Award (PhD Level) 2018! This award is given to one doctorate student each year in recognition of their research activities as well as their overall contribution to the University of Toronto Scarborough.

Research article on using multivariate fMRI to explore the role of the hippocampus in temporal duration memory. In this study we find that changes to the durations of intervals within a sequence have a significant impact on multivariate patterns of activity in the hippocampus.

Research article with the Ito LiMBiC Lab on the role of rodent ventral hippocampal subfields in learned approach-avoidance behaviour. In this study we demonstrate that pharmacological inactivation of CA1 and CA3 within the ventral hippocampus leads to opposing effects on how rodents respond to learned motivational conflict.

Two postdoctoral positions (one cognitive neuroscience, one behavioural neuroscience) are available to work across the Lee MTL Lab and Ito LiMBiC Lab on the role of the hippocampus and related structures in conflict processing. For further details please contact Andy Lee.
