CSDN Capstone – Maanasa Natrajan

Event Description

o Maanasa Natrajan’s Custom-Designed major pulls together neuroscience, biology, math, physics, and computational modeling. In this capstone presentation, Maanasa tackles one of the central questions in psychology and neuroscience: how learning and memory are manifested by changes in the brain. Episodic memories are thought to be stored in synaptic connections between hippocampal neurons that code for space and time, but connectivity and coding in the hippocampus continues to change even when there is no apparent learning or forgetting. Maanasa will discuss the computational model she has been developing, which uses dynamics in connectivity to generate dynamic representations that could benefit learning and permit stable memory.
