There’s been a flurry of recent papers on the engram– observing it, erasing it, and even artificially activating it. Have these new studies actually found the elusive engram? We review the evidence in this new Nature Reviews Neuroscience paper.
Without any fluster, Adam Santoro successfully defended his PhD on Monday. He’s the seventh PhD from the Frankland lab. In his thesis he developed a model to describe complementary contributions of episodic and semantic systems to memory expression. We thank external examiner Brian Wiltgen for joining us from UC Davis, and congratulate Adam on an outstanding defense of an outstanding thesis. Next stop for Adam: Google DeepMind. We will miss you!
