Title : Recording from single neurons in humans: The Entorhinal-Hippocampal Memory Circuit


Itzhak Fried
Professor of Neurosurgery
University of California, Los Angeles

Monday Feb 19, 4:00 PM
Faculty Hall, IISc

Dr. Itzhak Fried is a prominent epilepsy neurosurgeon who has pioneered the use of single neuron studies in epilepsy patients undergoing treatment for intractable seizures. He will be sharing his insights about memory circuits involving the entorhinal cortex and the hippocampus at a single neuron level. His research has led to fundamental insights into perception, memory, learning, language, sleep, imagery, and volition.
Dr. Fried is Professor of Neurosurgery and Psychiatry & Biobehavioral Sciences at UCLA. He is Director of the Adult Epilepsy Surgery Program there, and is also Co-Director of the Seizure Disorder Center. After obtaining a degree in physics at Tel-Aviv University, Dr. Fried completed his Ph.D. at UCLA, and went on to a medical degree at Stanford and neurosurgery training, specializing in epilepsy surgery, at Yale University.
