Dr. David Dupret

Programme Leader-Track Scientist

Dr. David Dupret completed his Ph.D. in Neuroscience and Neuropharmacology at the Institute François Magendie (INSERM, University of Bordeaux, France) in June 2007. He then joined the MRC Anatomical Neuropharmacology Unit in August 2007 as a Visiting Fellow, successively funded by the 'Institute of France' (Foundation Louis D. Research Fellowship 2007) and the International Brain Research Organisation (IBRO Research Fellowship 2008). In 2009 David was appointed as a MRC Investigator Scientist and joined St Edmund Hall College as a Fellow in Neuroscience. In 2011 he was appointed as a Tenure Track Group Leader. The general aim of his programme is to investigate neuronal dynamics in the hippocampus and related circuits during the formation of spatio-contextual memories and the expression of adaptive behaviours.

Key Research Areas:

  • Hippocampal circuit dynamics during active waking behaviour and sleep

  • In vivo multi-channel extracellular recording

  • Spatio-contextual memory
