The Knierim Lab reports in Neuron
A new research article from the Knierim lab on the neural mechanisms of pattern separation and pattern completion was published in the journal Neuron, accompanied by a Preview article highlighting the results. This research tested longstanding computational theories of the dentate gyrus and CA3 regions of the hippocampus, a brain structure critical for learning and memory. The dentate gyrus was proposed to perform a process called “pattern separation,” which reduces the overlap...
