Multidimensional analysis of memory mechanisms

International collaboration of Memory Research

A fleeting experience lasting only a few seconds can form a lifelong memory. After years, we can still recall the event. This ability defines who you are. We form memories and recall them every day. Yet it is still not clear how it works. However, with recently developed cutting-edge technologies in neuroscience, the time has come to unravel the mysteries of memory from multiple levels, from molecular science to neural circuitry to behavioral science.

In this project grant, seven laboratories in Japan, the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience (MPFI) in the United States, and the Interdisciplinary Institute for Neuroscience (IINS) in France will join forces to explore the complex biological phenomena of memory. Young researchers from each lab will not only collaborate, but also circulate their brains by interacting with each other. By bringing together laboratories that share a common interest in memory, but complement each other with unique approaches, we can expect synergistic effects, scientific contributions to the field, and global impact.
