Postdocs and Researchers  
Francisco Flores

Francisco Flores
Postdocfjflores [at] mit.edu

Francisco is interested in identifying and manipulating brain structures that control specific behavioral states, with a focus on general anesthesia and sleep.

Fanuel Muindi
Postdocfmuindi [at] mit.edu

Fanuel studies the neural pathways involved in the loss of consciousness during sleep and general anesthesia.

jon

Jon Newman
Postdocjpnewman [at] mit.eduURL

Jon is attempting to understand how cortical and hippocampal circuits consolidate memories using real-time decoding of multi-neuron spiking patterns coupled with closed-loop stimulation of intrinsic reward signals. He also develops new open-source tools for real-time electrophysiology.

Hector Penagos

Hector Penagos
Postdocpenagos [at] mit.edu

Hector studies the interactions between the hippocampus and anterior thalamus during spatial navigation and sleep.

Christa Van Dort

Christa Van Dort
Postdocvandortc [at] mit.edu

Christa uses in vivo electrophysiology, microstimulation, and pharmacology to study the mechanisms of sleep and anesthesia.

Carmen Varela

Carmen Varela
Postdoccarmenv [at] mit.eduURL

Carmen studies the interactions between the thalamus, hippocampus and neocortex during episodic memory consolidation. She uses multiple electrode recordings from the three sites in awake animals to study neural activity during different stages of episodic memory formation.

Jun Yamamoto

Jun Yamamoto
Honorary Lab Member yamajun [at] mit.edu

Jun developed motorized microdrives for better yield and stability. As a research scientist in the Tonegawa lab, he strives to push the limits of tetrode recordings in mice. He performs large-scale multi-unit recordings on transgenic mouse lines such as EC3-TTX and CA3-TTX to identify memory replay during waking and sleep.

   
Graduate Students  
Greg Hale

Greg Hale
Graduate Studentgreghale [at] mit.edu

Greg studies the impact of the hippocampal theta rhythm's wave-like propagation on sequential firing patterns of place cells.

Hannah Wirtshafter

Hannah Wirtshafter
Graduate StudentGShsw [at] mit.euURLURL

Hannah studies the integration of spatial and reward-contingency information in the hippocampus and its target structures.
