“How neurons encode memory: Mechanisms of memory formation and persistence”

April 21 @ 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Free

Abstract:

Learning and memory are essential for day-to-day living. Equally important, their alterations are thoughtto underlie neurological and neurodegenerative disorders. Prior work in the field has found many key features of learning and memory—including long-term potentiation and memory engram neurons. However, many gaps in knowledge remain, particularly mechanisms at the molecular level. Here, I will discuss how postsynaptic proteins mediate memory formation and persistence and how they can be modified to improve memory ability.
