Dr. Mizumori

Dr. Mizumori’s research focuses on decision making and memory mechanisms of the brain. Understanding the mechanisms of neuroplasticity as related to learning and memory is fundamental to the understanding of the causes of a variety of cognitive disorders as well as the developmental changes in learning that occur across the lifespan. Current efforts address the role of neuromodulators such as dopamine in flexible memory function. Of special interest is the dynamic nature of the neural codes that compute information relevant to adaptive decisions, both at the single cell level and in terms of interactions across brain areas such as the hippocampus, frontal cortex, striatum, and midbrain structures such as the ventral tegmental area. Mizumori and her group seek converging evidence from multiple levels of analysis; from behavioral to brain structure to cellular to genetic.
