From her lab website: The overarching goals of our research are: 1) To understand how the healthy adult brain regenerates from endogenous neural stem cells and apply basic learned principles to the degenerated brain to promote regeneration; 2) To investigate how circuit- and behavior-level information-processing properties are remodeled by the integration of new neurons into the existing circuits; 3) To explore the mechanisms regulating hippocampal-dependent learning and memory in health and Alzheimer’s disease at the molecular and neural circuit levels. https://songlab.web.unc.edu/
