Neural events are characteristics, transient, coordinated, neural activities that we can identify in aggregated signals (e.g., local field potentials or LFPs). It has been shown some neural events have signatures across several scales (neurons, neural populations, and large-scale networks). Moreover, they are also closely connected to behavior; for instance, Sharp-Wave Ripples is one of the most studied neural events and, over two decades, it has been shown they are broadly involved in cognitive functions (from memory consolidation to offline and online planning).

Project theme

We will different methods for identifying neural events on electrophysiology data recorded from rodents, or/and mice, or/and primates. We will compare the results from different methods, a pick a subset to use for the next step. Then we will investigate the behavior in the vicinity of these events. If time allows, we will also investigate how between different brain regions interact during these events.
