Menéndez de la Prida, from the Neuronal Circuits Laboratory, Instituto Cajal, CSIC in Madrid, Spain, aims to understand the function of the hippocampal and para-hippocampal circuits in the normal and the epileptic brain. She is interested in how complex patterns of activity are produced with a special emphasis in the cellular and synaptic rules that govern circuit dynamics. To tackle these questions she uses different in vitro and in vivo preparations. She focuses on different forms of activity, including several types of oscillations (ripples, fast ripples, theta and gamma) and epileptiform events. She has been invited by Rafael de la Torre and Adrià Tauste (IMIM).
