In this review article we survey the rodent and primate literature to further understand the involvement of the hippocampus in memory for temporal duration. We propose that the hippocampus supports duration memory in the context of event sequences and that the mechanisms that support duration memory may be similar to those underlying temporal order memory...

How does experiencing approach-avoidance conflict impact our memories? We conducted two behavioural studies to examine whether high approach-avoidance conflict scenarios results in changes to memory processing. Somewhat surprisingly, we failed to observe an interaction between the two. Read more here.

Research study examining the role of the dentate gyrus in approach-avoidance conflict processing and spatial pattern separation. We find a double dissociation between the ventral and dorsal regions, with inactivation of the former impacting approach-avoidance conflict processing and inactivation of the latter having a significant effect on spatial pattern...

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...

Sonja has been awarded the Canadian Psychological Association Certificate of Excellence for her Master’s thesis, which she successfully defended this past Summer. Congratulations Sonja!

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.
