Welcome to the USF Neurobiology of Learning and Memory Website

The primary focus of research in our laboratory is to develop a detailed understanding of the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in learning and memory and apply these insights to develop new treatments for cognitive disorders. Current efforts center on Alzheimer's, Angelman Syndrome, and schizophrenia among others.

Using a wide variety of experimental techniques, we investigate learning and memory at multiple levels of analysis. These include studies of molecular cascades underlying experience-dependent changes in neuronal function, electrophysiology within brain structures that support learning and memory, and how alterations in brain function through pharmacologic or genetic means affect behavior reflecting learning and memory.

Thank you for visiting!

We are proud to be a part of the USF Health community.

Meet the Lab!

Meet Dr. Weeber and all of our Lab Personnel, and get some insight into the various projects each is working on.


Clinical Trials!

We are excited to bring you our latest in combatting Angelman Syndrome: A collaboration with OVID Therapeautics called STARS. Clinical research studies, like the STARS study in Angelman syndrome, depend on volunteers to participate. Click here for more information.
