"Human single-neuron mechanisms of temporal structure encoding"


Pawel Tacikowski, Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience


Extracting patterns of recurring events is an essential mental ability, as it allows us to prepare for what is likely to happen next. While there is considerable evidence on how the brain encodes relations between objects in space, little is known about neuronal mechanisms assimilating relations between events in time. In this talk, I will briefly describe the method of recording single-neuron activity in humans and then I will present our recent findings on how human hippocampal-entorhinal neurons represent the temporal structure of experience. If time allows, I will also discuss some preliminary findings about the interaction between the medial prefrontal cortex and medial temporal lobe during the processing of self-relevant information.
