“Network Abnormalities and Interneuron Dysfunction in Alzheimer’s Disease”

Gladstone Science Talks Spring 2019
Jorge Palop, PhD, Assistant Investigator
  • Gladstone Science Talks
Wednesday, May 15, 2019 - 11:00am to 12:00pm
Mahley Auditorium

Jorge Palop, PhD
Assistant Investigator

Jorge Palop’s group studies the neuronal processes underlying cognitive impairments in neurological and neuropsychiatric conditions associated with abnormal synchronization of neuronal networks, including Alzheimer’s disease (AD). His laboratory is currently focused on understanding the role of inhibitory interneurons in altered oscillatory brain rhythms, network hypersynchrony, and cognitive impairments in AD. Using mouse models, electrophysiology, and optogenetics, Palop’s team aims to identify cellular and circuit mechanisms of cognitive dysfunction and to develop novel therapeutic approaches to restore brain functions.


Gladstone Science Talks allow investigators to share the latest research from their laboratories. These talks are open to the broader Gladstone community. View all upcoming Gladstone Science Talks
