I am studying the network dynamics relatively to the encoding of new memories during exploratory and memory-guided behaviors. How would the circuit activity differ in these two different motivational states.

I am interested in understanding how memory associated with any event is represented in the network. I am also very excited about devising new computational methods that help in advancing our insights about network dynamics.

Moises Arriaga

Moi was an MSTP student that grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and went to Brown University for undergrad. His work in the Han Lab focused on the behavior of subpopulations of hippocampal interneurons and how these cells may regulate network activity within the hippocampus. Moi defended his thesis in Aug. 2019 and is finishing his last year of medical school.  He is currently applying for residency programs.

Elena Waidmann

Elena Waidmann was an undergraduate from Chevy Chase, MD, and majored in Biology with a concentration in Neuroscience (B.A. 2017). In the Han Lab she performed brain clearing and immunostaining experiments to identify interneuron subtypes in the mouse hippocampus. After graduation she worked at the NIH as a post-baccalaureate fellow, where she studied the activity of face-selective neurons in the IT cortex of macaque monkeys.  She is currently a graduate student at Rockefeller University.
