lity to remember virtually anything from infancy. The primary goal of her research program is to determine the structural or functional immaturity responsible for infantile amnesia. Her lab also studies the nature of the memory decline in monkeys, which accompanies normal aging, to help explain aging-related memory disorders. Bachevalier lab poster presentations: Jessica Raper, Saturday, Oct. 17, 1 p.m. 2 p.m.; Alyson Zeamer, Saturday, Oct. 17, 2 p.m. 3 p.m.; Shala Blue, Saturday, Oct. 17, 3 p.m. 4 p.m.; and Laetitia Cirilli, Tuesday, Oct. 20, 11 a.m. noon.

Elizabeth A. Buffalo, PhD, researches the neuronal mechanisms involved in the establishment and maintenance of memory. Through her research, she records neural activity in monkeys that have been trained to perform various types of memory tasks and investigates how changes in neuronal activity correlate with each monkey's ability to learn and remember in order to better understand how medial temporal lobe circuits support memory formation. Such understanding has the potential to make way for new therapies aimed at reducing or preventing memory loss that results from medial temporal lobe disease. Buffalo lab poster presentation: Megan Tompkins, Saturday, Oct. 18, 2 p.m. 3 p.m.

Addiction

Michael J. Kuhar, PhD, chair of Yerkes' Division of Neuroscience, studies drug addiction and the role of CART peptides in the abuse of cocaine and other psycho-stimulate drugs. Kuhar's ongoing research includes examining the biochemical and physiological mechanisms involved in drug abuse in order to develop potential medications and treatments for drug abusers. Kuhar lab poster presentations: G. Desbordes, Saturday, Oct. 17, 3 p.m. 4pm.; George Rogge, Sunday, Oct. 18, 3 p.m. 4pm.; Doug Jones, PhD, Sunday, Oct. 18, 4 p.m. 5pm.; Yiming Lin, PhD, Monday, Oct. 19, 3 p.m. 4 p.m.; and George Hubert, PhD, Wednesday, Oct. 21, 8 a.m. 9 a.m.
