Investigating neural networks

The act of learning changes the neural networks of the brain. However, the genetic, molecular and cellular processes that form the basis of learning are only partially understood. The goal of the Adaptive Brain Circuits in Development and Learning URPP is to investigate how these neural networks form and how they contribute to specific behaviors in humans and different animal models.
