Center for Learning and Memory
Research Unit Profile
The Center for Learning and Memory (CLM) was created at The University of Texas by the Provost in 2004 with the vision of establishing a premier and internationally recognized research center that would utilize the collective abilities of accomplished scientists in the fields of molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, physiology, psychology, pharmacology, engineering, physics, and computer science to elucidate some of the important mysteries into the mechanisms that govern the processes of learning and memory.

|Aldrich, Richard||School of Biological Sciences; Section of Neurobiology||Understanding the mechanisms of ion channel function and the role of ion channels in electrical signaling and physiology|
|Colgin, Laura||Section of Neurobiology||Brain rhythms reflect synchronized activity across many neurons and thus provide a means for studying how groups of neurons coordinate their activity during complex cognitive functions such as …|
|Drew, Michael||Section of Neurobiology||A broad aim of my research is to understand how adult hippocampal neurogenesis influences learning and cognition. The work is based on growing evidence that adult neurogenesis constitutes a …|
|Fiete, Ila||School of Biological Sciences; Section of Neurobiology; Statistics and Scientific Computation||Professor Fiete works on the theory and modeling of neural systems where the collective behavior is rich, but where underlying features such as single-neuron properties and local connectivity are …|
|Golding, Nace||School of Biological Sciences; Section of Neurobiology||Biophysics of information processing in dendrites|
|Harris, Kristen||School of Biological Sciences; Section of Neurobiology||Knowing the dimensions and connectivity of synapses is fundamental to understanding function. Our goal is to elucidate structural components involved in the cell biology of learning and memory. We …|
|Johnston, Daniel||School of Biological Sciences; Section of Neurobiology||synaptic and neuronal plasticity cellular mechanisms of learning and memory cellulal neurophysiology of central neurons membrane biophysics epilepsy depression aging|
|Koester, Helmut||School of Biological Sciences; Section of Neurobiology||In every second of our life we receive a huge amount of information. This information is processed by the brain and ultimately determines our behavior. Sometimes even the smallest sensory cues can …|
|Mauk, Michael||School of Biological Sciences; Section of Neurobiology||Information processing and learning in the cerebellum and prefrontal cortex. The levels of analysis are: 1) behavioral studies, reversible lesions and in vivo recordings of neural activity related to …|
|Nishiyama, Hiroshi||School of Biological Sciences; Section of Neurobiology||Dr. Nishiyama is currently focused on the following questions. • How is axonal structural plasticity regulated in the adult brain during learning? • How does axonal remodeling …|
|Poldrack, Russell||School of Biological Sciences; Section of Neurobiology; Psychology||Dr. Poldrack's primary research interests are in the cognitive neuroscience of learning and memory, decision making, and executive function, using neuroimaging as the primary method to examine …|
|Preston, Alison||School of Biological Sciences; Section of Neurobiology; Psychology||Understanding memory and how it is implemented in the human brain. Using a combination of behavioral and brain imaging techniques, Dr. Preston's research explores how we form new memories, how we …|
|Raab-Graham, Kimberly||School of Biological Sciences; Section of Neurobiology||Raab-Graham’s current research has focused on identifying synaptic mRNAs and developing tools to characterize the local translation of these transcripts. She now plans to use these tools to …|
|Zemelman, Boris||Section of Neurobiology||A fundamental question in brain science is how networks of neurons assemble and transpose sensory and organismal information into physiological and behavioral outcome. My laboratory focuses on the …|
