Description: Neuroscience Seminar Series

Dr. Sweatt Lab’s interest is in understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying learning and memory. For the last two decades his laboratory has been investigating the biochemical mechanisms subserving the induction and maintenance of long-term potentiation (LTP) in the hippocampus and underlying memory formation in the behaving animal. They use both pharmacologic and genetic experimental manipulations to investigate the molecular basis of normal learning and the biochemical derangements that underlie pathological conditions affecting learning and memory. Their future scientific goal is to capitalize upon our recent insights into the signal transduction mechanisms operating in hippocampal synaptic plasticity in order to develop new treatments for memory disorders.
