Description:

The Hotchkiss Brain Institute (HBI) is pleased to present the 7th annual Bryan Kolb Lecture in Behavioural Neuroscience and HBI Welcome Back Wine & Cheese Reception

Bryan Kolb Lecture in Behavioural Neuroscience
Location: HSC Theatre 4
Time: 3:00 - 4:00 pm

Dr. Josselyn investigates how memories are physically stored in the brain and how this process is affected by aging, mental illness, and neurological disorders. Current research suggests that individual memory traces (or ‘engrams’) are encoded on small subsets of neurons in the brain. During memory formation, these neurons ‘compete’ to be included in the memory engram. In this talk, she will discuss the mechanisms involved in this competition, and how scientific manipulations of the memory engram can change behavior expression at the level of the organism.
