Example of a memory cell in the human hippocampus.

Previous work includes the identification of novelty-signaling neurons in the human hippocampus and amygdala of epilepsy patients that express single-trial learning; identification of whole-face selective neurons in the human amygdala; description of the relationship between theta-frequency phase locking of human hippocampal neurons during learning and later memory strength; and development of online spike sorting and analysis tools.
