Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Dr Tom Hartley, Professor John O’Keefe FRS, Professor Neil Burgess and Dr Colin Lever

Event details

Recent discoveries have revealed the microstructure of the brain's representation of self-location in the hippocampal formation, providing an ideal model system for investigating the neural codes of memory and cognition. This meeting will integrate advances in optogenetics, virtual-reality, inducible transgenics, neuroimaging and computational neuroscience to define the neural mechanisms of navigation, with implications extending to behavioural genetics, robotics and medicine.

Biographies of the organisers and speakers are available below. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page shortly after the event.
