Department of Neuroscience

Laura Colgin is an Associate Professor in the Department of Neuroscience at the University of Texas at Austin. She received her PhD from the Institute for Mathematical Behavioral Sciences at the University of California at Irvine, and she completed her postdoctoral training in the laboratory of Nobel Laureates Edvard and May-Britt Moser. Her research uses state-of-the-art multisite recording and multivariate analysis techniques to address several key questions in systems neuroscience, including how the hippocampus stores and retrieves memories and how neuronal computations in the entorhinal-hippocampal network create the spatial component of these memories.
