Dr. Tracy Wang attends Cajal Brain Prize Course in Bordeaux, France

Dr. Wang attended the Cajal Brain Prize Course – the Hippocampus: from Circuits to Cognition part of the CAJAL Advanced Neuroscience Training Programme over October 10th through the 31st. The course consisted of lectures and group projects at the beautiful Bordeaux Neurocampus in Bordeaux, France. There, group projects included investigating prefrontal-hippocampal connectivity using rabies viral vectors in mice in the laboratory of resident instructor Dr. Andreas Frick and how the hippocampus coordinates cortical activity using electrocortiocography and depth electodes in the hippocampus of anesthetized and naturally sleeping rats with visiting instructor Dr. Francesco Battaglia from the Donders Institute.

Keynote speakers included program directors: Jozsef Csicsvari, Charan Ranganath, Mario Carta, and Christophe Mulle spanning topics from cellular and systems to cognitive levels.
