memory and its disorders
Our lab studies mechanisms of memory and memory disorders. We use a number of techniques and approaches that allow us to study memory from molecular mechanisms to the cells they affect, the circuits and neuroanatomy they modulate, all the way to behavioral studies in rodents and patients. For example, recently we have discovered the first mechanisms of memory allocation and memory linking and potential treatments for cognitive deficits associated with Neurofibromatosis type I, Tuberous Sclerosis, Noonan syndrome and HIV. Our field of study is Molecular and Cellular Cognition.
