Memory processing and spatial navigation
Fabian Kloosterman, PhD
Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences, KU Leuven, Belgium
We study the brain circuits that support the storage, expression and use of memories during behavior
- memory processing
- spatial navigation
- hippocampal-cortical circuits
- decoding memories
Our scientific questions
How do we remember some of the daily events in our life, and why do we forget others? How do we recall the route that we have to travel to get from home to work, even when faced with a roadblock? How do we learn from our experiences and use this knowledge when we make decisions?
The Kloosterman lab aims to answer these questions by studying neural circuits and systems, unravelling the fundamental mechanisms by which the mammalian brain represents, stores and processes information.
