Seminar: CREB and the Search for Memory Enhancers

"CREB and the Search for Memory Enhancers"

Tim Tully, Dart Neuroscience
Mosher Alumni House
Alumni Hall, 2nd floor
Thursday September 24th, 4:00 PM

Tim Tully utilizes the study of fruit flies to elucidate genes related to memory formation. His experiments on "photographic memory" in fruit flies were the first demonstration of genetically enhanced memory. His work opens the possibility of developments in effective treatments for both behavioral and pharmacological memory loss in humans. Dr. Tully’s research was featured in the 2004 PBS special entitled /A Gene You Won’t Forget/.
