Welcome to the Laboratory of Neurochemistry of the Memory
The work that we do is designed to provide knowledge about the mechanisms of chemical communication between the structures which interact during the formation of aversive memories, as well as those which do not have an evident emotional component, by simultaneously integrating different levels of study.
Dra. María Isabel Miranda Saucedo
PhD Principal Investigator
Behavioral and Cognitive Neurobiology Department.
I completed my Master’s and PhD in the department of Neuroscience at the Cellular Physiology Institute of the National University of Mexico, where I focused on the study of cortical cholinergic system function during memory formation, and followed that with a post-doctoral fellowship at UCI Irvine at the Center for Neurobiology of Learning and Memory at the University of California, Irvine, in Dr. James McGaugh´s laboratory. In 2004 I joined the Neurobiology Institute at UNAM as a Principal Investigator, where I´m currently working on several projects related to neurochemical and anatomical interactions during learning and memory.
