"Determinants of feedforward inhibition in the dentrate gyrus"
Administered by Epilepsy Foundation Funding for 2007/2008 Academic Year The predominant input to the hippocampus, a brain structure necessary for learning and memory, shows pathological activity in temporal lobe epilepsy. The overall goal of this research is to understand how this input recruits excitatory and inhibitory components of the electrical network in the hippocampus.
