Molecular and cellular biology of memory formation

The Jarome lab uses a variety of behavioral, molecular and genetic approaches to study the molecular and cellular mechanisms that control memory formation and modification in neurons. Current projects in the lab examine the role of epigenetic mechanisms and the ubiquitin-proteasome system in memory storage processes in the hippocampus, amygdala and prefrontal cortex.
