UCI wins 5-year, $14M NIH grant to study brain circuits susceptible to aging, Alzheimer’s disease

Findings will advance development of better early diagnostic tools, new treatment strategies

UCI-led team first to discover new neural circuits that regulate spatial learning and memory in the brain’s hippocampal formation

Understanding of novel functional roles can advance research in Alzheimer’s disease, other learning and memory disorders
