The University of California at Davis has one of the largest concentrations of researchers studying learning, memory, and neural plasticity of any university in the world. Researchers study memory in both healthy populations and in individuals with memory disorders, and also in animal models.
The goals of the Memory & Plasticity Group are to:
(1) Uncover the mechanisms by which experiences shape neural circuits and behavior
(2) To understand how mechanisms of learning and memory are affected by development, aging, and disease
(3) And to develop new approaches to improve learning and memory in healthy individuals and in patients with memory disorders.
