Background and activities

Professor of Medicine and leader of the Kentros research group at the Kavli Institute of Systems Neuroscience, NTNU.

Kentros’ laboratory takes advantage of his dual molecular and neurophysiological background by combining the anatomical specificity of molecular genetics with in vivo electrophysiological recordings and anatomical analysis.

The lab uses mice capable of driving the expression of transgenes in particular subsets of neurons in brain areas involved in learning and memory to determine their precise connectivity and to modulate their neural activity while recording from other cell types. In this way, the lab investigates the anatomical and functional circuitry underlying learning and memory.
