Bakgrunn og aktiviteter

Jonathan Whitlock is head of the Whitlock research group at the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience. His focus is on unraveling the neural circuits involved in action-planning and action understanding.

Whitlock  started at the Kavli Institute in a post-doctoral position with Edvard and May-Britt Moser, characterizing and comparing navigational representations across parietal and entorhinal cortices in freely-behaving rats.

He was a graduate student of Mark Bear, first at Brown University, then MIT. For his thesis work he used a combination of biochemical and electrophysiological techniques to demonstrate that synaptic connections in the hippocampus grew stronger as a consequence of single-trial learning in rats.
