Multimodal imaging of changes to memory systems in the non-human primate brain

The primate brain is specialised for higher cognitive function that is best understood as a series of networks. Episodic memory, for example, involves a complex network of cortical and subcortical regions. To uncover the function of a network we may need to combine techniques that target individual regions with whole-brain techniques. I will discuss ways that we can explore the structural and functional changes that occur in this network and others, including combining lesions and cognitive training with functional and structural MRI..
