How the human thalamus guides navigation and memory: a common coding framework built on direct thalamic recordings

Project description

Thalamic activity monitoring to unveil cognitive functions

Emerging evidence indicates that human thalamus is implicated in higher cognitive functions, such as memory formation and navigation. To address the technological limitations that have impeded the full understanding of the role of the thalamus, the EU-funded DirectThalamus project proposes to develop an oscillatory model of the neurological processing that takes place in this part of the brain. Researchers will record and modulate intracranial thalamic activity and, alongside functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data from healthy subjects, they will determine how information processing in the thalamus correlates with cognitive function. Results will lay the foundation for advancing clinical and basic neuroscience research.
