Another interest of the Brain Rhythms lab is looking at memory consolidation with an activity-dependent approach. Spearheaded by the paper published by Sharma et al. (2011) detailing the neurosilencing effects of protein synthesis inhibitor Anisomycin, the lab has been interested in studying the network-level effects of other common pharmacological manipulations (eg. PKM-ZETA, ZIP, etc). The lab is also taking a translational approach to behavioural research by associating spatial memory, cued fear memory, and contextual fear memory with neurosignaling deficits in the dorsal hippocampus under Anisomycin, Tetrododoxin, and physiological saline.
