Research summary

My research interests are the neural and cellular substrates of learning and memory processes in animals. I am specifically interested in the distinct contributions the perirhinal and prefrontal cortices and the hippocampal formation make to recognition memory processing.

The work conducted by my research group has involved the use of a number of complementary behavioural, pharmacological and molecular techniques to examine the neural basis of recognition memory. In earlier experiments we  revealed the differential roles played by the perirhinal cortex, hippocampus and prefrontal cortex in specific components of recognition memory, namely familiairity discrimination (our ability to tell if a stimulus ...
