laboratory is interested in the behavioral and
neurobiological factors that regulate learning and memory.
We combine classical conditioning procedures with
biochemical, pharmacological, electrophysiological, and
neuroanatomical techniques to study topics such as
interactions between cortical-hippocampal systems, cellular
mechanisms underlying attention and learning, effects of
exercise on learning and memory, and the basis for
individual differences in these functions. One
goal of this research is to further our understanding of the
basic mechanisms of information processing in the brain.
A second goal is to relate these findings to the biological
basis of cognitive dysfunction and mental illness in humans.
