    Research interests

    Memory processes, including memory formation, storage, retrieval, and extinction, are fundamental for brain function and they are affected in various psychiatric illnesses such as mental retardation, Alzheimer's disease, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Currently, the biological basis of memory processes is not sufficiently well understood to develop successful treatments for memory dysfunctions. However, the advent of sophisticated molecular techniques now allows for an advanced analysis of memory processes in experimental animals, which promises to be translated for the patients.
