Lectures and seminars Research seminar at Division of Eye and Vision - Frank Sengpiel
Division of Eye and Vision welcomes you to a research seminar hosted by Research Group Pete Williams. Speaker of the seminar is Frank Sengpiel, Professor of Neuroscience, Head of Neuroscience Division at Cardiff University, UK.
Title: What does the retrosplenial cortex do? Visual responses and visuospatial memory engrams
The Sengpiel lab studies the mechanisms of normal development and plasticity of the primary visual cortex (V1). Research over the past 20 years has identified a large number of molecules and pathways that are involved in developmental plasticity as well as in the regulation of the critical period during which the cortex is particularly susceptible to being shaped by sensory experience and indeed requires appropriate experience to develop normally.
Recently, visuospatial processing and visuospatial memory in the retrosplenial cortex (RSC) have become a major focus of research in the Sengpiel lab. The RSC has emerged as a key brain area supporting episodic and topographical memory in humans as well as spatial memory in rodents.
