Artificially modulating positive and negative memories in healthy and maladaptive states

January 11, 2018 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Neurological Institute Alumni Auditorium

With the accumulation of our knowledge about how memories are formed, retrieved, and updated, neuroscience is now reaching a point where discrete memories can be identified and manipulated at rapid timescales. Here, I will review recent advances in memory research that combine transgenic, optogenetic, in vivo imaging, and viral-tracing strategies to visualize and manipulate discrete sets of cells sufficient to modulate mnemonic processes. I will focus on three lines of research: acutely activating and visualizing hippocampus cells to drive the behavioral expression of positive and negative memories; acutely activating cells processing positive memories to suppress the return of fear; and, chronically activating cells processing positive and negative memories to enduringly modulate social and hedonic-like states. Together, I propose that defined sets of hippocampus cells provide a neuronal node sufficient to permanently alter healthy and maladaptive states
