Our aim is to identify psychobiological bases of declarative memory (DM) alterations occurring in aging and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
We have developed specific behavioral models of age- and PTSD-related memory alterations in the mouse. Using these models, we search correlates of the cognitive changes at the system, cellular and molecular levels of brain activities.
To establish causality links between neurobiological and cognitive changes, we then combine interventional approaches with pharmacological tools/optogenetics to our behavioral testing.
