“The mission of our lab is twofold: to reveal the neural circuit mechanisms of memory storage and retrieval, and to artificially modulate memories to combat mental health disorders. We will do so in a multi-disciplinary fashion by combining virus engineering strategies, immunohistochemistry, physiology, optogenetics, functional imaging of targeted populations in vivo, and a battery of behavioral assays. Our technical repertoire, of course, will evolve as our studies evolve.

Given that any given brain region interacts with numerous targets along exquisitely precise spatial and temporal dimensions — nothing in the brain exists in a vacuum — we’ll study the circuit-wide and behavioral manifestations of learning and memory across a variety of structurally and functionally connected areas. We believe that a systems-level analysis of memory that examines genetically-defined projection-specific cell-types, while simultaneously surveying their real-time physiological dynamics, is a tractable experimental path towards understanding and controlling this complex, ephemeral process.” ~from the Ramirez Lab website
