Dr. Boris Zemelman receives a Human Frontiers in Science Program Grant

Dr. Boris Zemelman is the recipient of a Human Frontiers in Science Program Grant.  This grant entitled “In vivo functional imaging and high-resolution manipulations of hippocampal memory circuits” is a collaborative project that will investigate how the brain encodes and processes spatial memory.  Dr. Zemelman will use genetic tools for activation and silencing neurons and in vivo imaging to explore the role of inhibition in cellular and circuit mechanisms used to encode spatial information in the brain.
