Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory (CNLM)

The Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory (CNLM) was established by the UC Regents in 1983 and is the first research institute in the world dedicated exclusively to the multidisciplinary study of learning and memory mechanisms. The CNLM’s mission is to promote the most innovative learning and memory research transforming education, technology and brain health. In order to accomplish this mission, CNLM Faculty Fellows strive to understand how the brain learns and remembers information using a wide variety of experimental techniques at multiple levels of analysis. These include studies of the molecular cascades underlying experience-dependent changes in neuronal function, the systems in the brain that support different types of learning and memory, and how alterations in brain structure and function affect behavior.
