Applied statistical and machine learning methods (PCA, Procrustes alignment, clustering etc.) on place cell data to study how different experiences are encoded in the hippocampal ensemble across subjects.
Collected and analyzed data from simultaneous in vivo electrophysiology recording in the hippocampus and fiber photometry recording in the ventral striatum.
