“Probing Synaptic Plasticity Mechanisms Underlying Learning and Memory”

Celestine’s project focuses on understanding how learning and memory occur in the brain, specifically in the hippocampus. She is using a combination of neuroscience, bioengineering, and behavioral sciences to study the synaptic and circuit mechanisms involved in memory formation. By integrating knowledge from various fields such as neuroscience, bioengineering, and behavioral sciences, this project aims to shed light on the complex processes underlying learning and memory. The findings may have implications for understanding memory disorders and developing potential therapies.
