Biography: 

Our brains go through changes that are continuously renewing themselves as we experience the world. Research in Dr. Bohbot’s laboratory focuses on the multiple brain areas involved in processing episodic memories (spatio-temporal information) during navigation. We are interested in changes in the brain that occur as a result of practice or a learning experience. Multi-model aspects of memory, including visual, auditory, olfactory and proprioceptive aspects are being studied. Approaches include functional neuroimaging, neuroanatomy, neuropsychology, genetic and hormonal analyses with various populations that range from early development to senescence (patients with Epilepsy, Leukemia, Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease). Applications are aimed at using multiple memory systems geared at rehabilitation techniques in patients with brain damage.
