memory, ketamine, entorhinal

My name is Kei Masuda, and I am an MD/PhD student in the Neurosciences PhD program.  I am in Lisa Giocomo’s lab which uses electrophysiology, behavior, imaging, gene manipulations, optogenetics and computational modeling to study the neural coding of spatial memory and navigation. My current project seeks to understand the effect of ketamine on the hippocampal-entorhinal circuitry. In the future, I will plan on integrating neuroscience research with clinical work in the field of neurology.
