The study of memory mechanisms to identify new therapeutic targets for PTSD

20 March 2020

In this video, Dr. Mark Cembrowski, Assistant Professor at University of British Columbia, explores the importance of understanding the physical underpinnings of fear memory in order to find new therapies for fear-related memory disorders like PTSD. Kaitlin Sullivan, an MSc Student in the Cembrowski Lab, discusses how the lab uses single-cell RNA sequencing to look for neurons that are active during the creation and recollection of fear memory, in the hopes of being able to disrupt these processes.
