The McNaughton laboratory is part the Department of Neurobiology and Behavior and is affiliated with the multidisciplinary effort of the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory (CNLM) at the University of California Irvine. The lab focuses on the study of cognition with particular emphasis on physiological and computational underpinnings of memory and memory recall and associated disorders. The principle investigator, Distinguished Professor Bruce L. McNaughton, Ph.D., is a pioneer in the field of memory and memory retrieval in hippocampus and utilizes numerous electrophysiological, optical, behavioral, and molecular approaches to studying this basic phenomena in model animals.
