Memory is commonly associated with brain activity, but recent evidence indicates that memory can be expressed by single cells, inherited, and possibly encoded by molecules. Three speakers will offer fresh perspectives on memory based on new research from their labs. Following these presentations, attendees will be invited to ask questions of the speakers during a moderated Q&A.
The Department of Integrative Biology and Physiology is focused on addressing the most pressing questions in physiology by harnessing our world-renowned expertise and highly collaborative spirit. We have strengths in developing cutting-edge computational and quantitative approaches that we apply to many physiological systems, enabling discoveries in how molecules, cells, tissues and organisms solve the problem of biological communication, which is essential for life. Our innovations in basic science research are fundamental to addressing human health and disease.
