The event will be held on January 24 at noon in Room 3008 of the CALIT2 Building. Our guest speaker is Dr. Michael Yassa. He is an Associate Professor of Neurobiology and Behavior, Neurology, and Psychiatry at UC Irvine and the Director of the Center for Neurobiology of Learning and Memory as well as UC Irvine Chancellor’s Fellow.

Yassa received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Johns Hopkins University and his PhD in Neurobiology from UC Irvine. He started his laboratory at the Johns Hopkins University in Psychological and Brain Sciences and moved back to UC Irvine in 2014. His research interests are primarily focused on basic neural mechanisms of learning and memory, as well as translational applications of this work to development, aging, neurological and neuropsychiatric disease. His lab uses a host of neuroscientific approaches to address questions of interest including multimodal high-resolution MRI in animals and humans, PET and EEG in healthy and diseased individuals, as well as depth electrode recordings in epilepsy patients.

We hope that you can join us for this event! Be sure to RSVP!
