New advances in virology and genetic technology offer powerful tools for studies of neural circuit organization and function. In this talk, Dr. Xu will highlight his lab’s applications of viral genetic tools in mapping hippocampal neural circuits related to spatial learning and memory. He will discuss insights from our studies of noncanonical subicular - hippocampal CA1 pathways using the latest technologies of neuroscience.
