Welcome to the USF Neurobiology of Learning & Memory Laboratory website
The primary focus of research in our
laboratory is to develop a detailed understanding of the cellular and
molecular mechanisms involved in learning and memory and apply these
insights to develop new treatments for cognitive
disorders. Current efforts center on Alzheimer's, Angelman
Syndrome, and schizophrenia among others.
Using a wide variety of experimental techniques, we investigate
learning and memory at multiple levels of analysis. These include
studies of molecular cascades underlying experience-dependent changes
in neuronal function, electrophysiology within brain structures that
support learning and memory, and how alterations in brain function
through pharmacologic or genetic means affect behavior reflecting
learning and memory.
