Volunteers / Internships
We welcome highly motivated students who have completed at least 2 years of college, to take part to ongoing projects (students should be available for 10-15 hours/week, 6 months minimum).
The project focuses on identifying the support for memory function in healthy subjects, aging and amnesia. Several aspects of memory will be studied (familiarity versus recollection, memory for single items versus pairs, memory for space versus time) using a multidisciplinary approach including behavioral, lesion, neuroanatomical imaging cutting edge techniques in rats and mutant mice and to a lesser extent degree, fMRI in rodents and humans as well as human behavioral testing. The project aims at defining the brain areas activated in different memory types and the neurotransmitters involved.The focus is on the medial temporal areas with a additional interest on the prefrontal cortex and the amygdala.Previous lab experience is required.
