Bryan Kolb Lecture in Behavioural Neuroscience & HBI Welcome Back Reception
Fri, 16 September 2016, 3:00 PM – 6:30 PM MDT
The Hotchkiss Brain Institute is pleased to present the seventh annual Bryan Kolb Lecture in Behavioural Neuroscience on Friday, September 16, 2016 with special guest Dr. Sheena Josselyn. Following the lecture, we invite all members, trainees, staff and guests to join us for the HBI Welcome Back Wine & Cheese reception.
Making, Breaking and Linking Memories
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.
Lecture begins at 3:00 pm
