Marian Tsanov

Marian Tsanov,

M.D., P.h.D


One of the major unsolved problems in neuroscience is the link between the long-term synaptic plasticity and the mnemonic functions of the brain. How the experience alters neuronal connectivity is the major question of my research. My goal is to understand the physiological plasticity that relates hippocampal, neocortical and subcortical networks.

General research interests: Systems Neuroscience, Learning and Memory, Synaptic Plasticity

Specific research interests: Hippocampo-diencephalic interaction in the formation of episodic memory, Experience-dependent plasticity mechanisms of hippocampal place cells
