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