Dmitriy Aronov Awarded the Helen Hay Whitney Foundation Fellowship
- Posted on March 05, 2012
Dr. Dmitriy Aronov, a postdoctoral fellow in the Tank Lab was awarded the Helen Hay Whitney Foundation fellowship for his project Mechanisms of hippocampal remapping in rats navigating in virtual reality. This project will use a virtual reality setup to study rats performing spatial navigation tasks. In particular, it will seek to understand how the brain areas involved these behaviors switch between representations of distinct spatial memories. This research will contribute to our general understanding of how memories are processed in the brain.
