Our lab at Loma Linda University in southern California primarily uses animal models to understand the biological basis of learning/memory and how aging, brain injury or disease can alter behavior. Techniques used include behavioral assessment (e.g., water maze) of rats and genetically modified (transgenic/knockout) mice, pharmacology (e.g., manipulation of behavior with various drugs), small animal surgery (e.g., intracardial perfusion, electrolytic brain lesions, induction of ischemic stroke), histology/immunohistochemistry (e.g., visualization of amyloid plaques in brain slices), stereological microscopy (unbiased quantification of brain structures under a microscope), and biochemistry (e.g., protein assays of brain tissue using Western blot and ELISAs).
