About the Center

The Center for Learning and Memory (CLM) is a basic research center comprised of neuroscientists with the shared goal of elucidating the mechanisms that govern learning and memory.

Memory matters.  A lot.  It is one of the qualities that makes us human.  It is thus a cruel fact that many diseases that impact brain health, including Alzheimer’s, addiction, depression, traumatic injury, epilepsy and stroke, affect learning and memory and place a staggering burden on society in terms of human suffering and economic impact.

Given these costs to society, CLM’s research is unquestionably for and about our daily lives and public health.  Research at CLM builds the foundation of knowledge about the brain that is essential for understanding disorders of learning and memory.  Our goal is to begin to understand, at a fundamental level, what it means to be human.
