Research summary

My research focuses on the neural processes that lie behind memory and learning.

I am particularly interested in the neural substrates of recognition memory. Differences in neuronal activity are detected electrophysiologically and by using immunocyotchemical markers such as Fos, a protein that is produced at higher levels in more active regions of the brain. By measuring activity differences after presenting stimuli that vary in familiarity - from a novel stimulus, which has never been previously encountered, to familiar stimuli, experienced many times before - it is possible to observe in which regions of the brain and under what circumstances the level of ...
