The Neuro Team
Viviane Sziklas, PhD
Dr. Viviane Sziklas uses animal models to study the neural mechanisms underlying various forms of spatial learning and memory. The extended hippocampal system is important for learning that different stimuli, places, and events in the environment are associated with each other. Dr. Sziklas’s work focuses on mapping precisely the neural regions underlying these processes. Such investigation is critical to a better understanding and classification of memory disorders among patients with lesions in these brain areas. Her laboratory also studies memory and other cognitive functions among patients who undergo focal cortical excision for epilepsy.
