Welcome to the Stork Lab

Our research is devoted to the understanding of molecular mechanisms underlying information storage in the central nervous system. We are fascinated by the processes that occur in brain circuits following a specific experience and that underlie the consolidation of recently acquired memories and their modification upon re-experience. We believe that a better knowledge of these processes will not only foster the understanding of brain function in general but provides a key to therapeutic intervention in neuropsychiatric conditions ranging from intellectual disabilities to stress-induced affective disorders.
