My laboratory is interested in examining how memories are formed, and what goes wrong during the memory impairment conditions such as the Alzheimer’s disease.

Understanding the mechanisms by which the brain stores and retrieves information is one of the great endeavors in modern neuroscience. Our memories link us with the past and help plan the future.  Thus, a lot of effort is directed towards elucidating the mechanisms that govern memory formation. As wonderful as memory is, the consequences of memory loss are devastating.  At one end of the spectrum is simple, age related senile forgetting (senior moments), at the other end is the severe memory loss as seen in Alzheimer’s disease.  

In addition to being a fascinating scientific Endeavour, the elucidation of mechanisms of memory formation may help understand what goes wrong during memory impairment. Understanding of such defects could ultimately lead to the design of specific therapies that may be useful to treat such conditions.
