Dr. Gallagher's lab is interested in neural systems that serve a role in memory and attention. Behavioral studies in laboratory rodents are conducted in conjuction with a range of neurobiological techniques. For example, they examine the behavioral effects of removing specific neurons in the brain with newly developed immunotoxins, they measure information encoding by neurons in awake behaving animals, and they use molecular biological methods to assess the expression of genes and proteins involved in neural plasticity. One problem under study concerns the effects of aging on memory. Other research in her laboratory includes studies of subcortical neural circuitry and mechanisms used to regulate cortical processing.
