Dr. Josselyn is interested in understanding how the brain encodes, stores and uses information. Several human disorders (ranging from autism spectrum disorder to Alzheimer’s disease) may stem from disrupted information processing. Therefore, this basic knowledge is not only critical for understanding normal brain function, but also vital for the development of new treatment strategies for these disorders. Dr. Josselyn’s lab’s examines how the physical or functional representation of a memory in the brain (a memory trace or “engram”) is formed and used in mice.
