From cell-cell recognition to memory formation. New strategies for the treatment of dysfunctional plasticity, learning and memory
The PROMEMORIA project focuses on the role of neuronal cell adhesion molecules and cell recognition processes in normal and dysfunctional plasticity, learning and memory with the aim of developing compounds with a beneficial effect on diseases involving cognitive impairment. The project focuses on gene discovery, structural biology, synaptic plasticity at both the physiological and morphological level, and a number of models of deficient plasticity, learning and memory. Moreover, there is a considerable expertise in drug screening and development.
