Visiting Scientist

While in the Unit, Dr. Stéphanie Trouche studied how hippocampal assembly firing patterns related to spatial memory traces influence downstream structures for the purpose of behavioural performance.

Before joining Oxford, Stéphanie’s previous research has focused on the neural circuits underlying memory processes and has employed a systems-neuroscience approach combining behavioural, neuroanatomical and imaging tools. In September 2009, Stéphanie obtained her Ph.D. in Neuroscience at the University of Toulouse, France, where she examined the contribution of new hippocampal neurons to spatial memory processes. She moved in January 2010 as a Fyssen Postdoctoral Fellow to Tufts University School of Medicine (Department of Neuroscience), Boston, USA, where she studied the role of the inhibitory circuits during memory extinction. Stéphanie  joined the Dupret lab as an MRC Investigator Scientist in December 2012 to investigate the circuit-level expression of hippocampal representations of space in relation to spatial memory and appetitive behaviour . In June 2018, Stéphanie moved to the University of Montpellier, France, to start her independent research as a Principal Investigator of the National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM).
