Neural circuits for context-specific emotional memories

The cerebral cortex endows us with the ability to perform complex cognitive and emotional processes supporting adaptive behavior. The hippocampus is a high-order cortical area instrumental for cognition and emotions. We have recently identified selective neuronal signatures for reward processing and spatial exploration in the ventral CA1 hippocampus (Ciocchi et al., 2015, Science). The project will address the neural basis of context-s…
