|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||Neuron communication and development in brain circuits, synaptic plasticity, and sensory processing (auditory system).|
|Harris, Kristen||Neuroscience||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 …|

|Lewis-Peacock, Jarrod||Neuroscience; Psychology||Interactions between memory, attention, and learning; neural decoding & neurofeedback|
|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 …|
|Preston, Alison||Neuroscience; 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||Neuroscience||We strive to understand the role of hippocampus in memory formation by manipulating its functional elements, namely the assemblies of cells that carry out particular tasks. This objective raises four …|
