Show Summary Details


Ivan Izquierdo and his coworkers demonstrated the main molecular steps of memory consolidation for one-trial avoidance and other tasks in the hippocampus and other brain areas, the separation of short- and long-term memory, and the main mechanisms of extinction and memory persistence. Izquierdo trained over 90 graduate students, established memory research in Brazil and Argentina, and set up several centers of excellence in Neuroscience in those countries.
