Welcome to the Frankland Lab
Neurobiology Laboratory at the Hospital for Sick Children


Learning and Memory

Remote Memory

Our lab focuses on how remote memories are organized in the cortex, and the molecular and cellular events that underlie their consolidation.

Neurogenesis and Forgetting

Our lab is interested in how these new neurons contribute to hippocampal memory function. In particular we are interested in how new neurons regulate clearance of memories from the hippocampus (or forgetting).
