Our focus is on gaining an understanding of how habituation, sensitization and explicit memories are encoded and consolidated in the hippocampus and how dysfunctional memory disorders (dementias) can be better treated. We have synthesized several angiotensin analogs that show promise as notropics. We are also interested in developing new drug treatments for seizure disorders. Finally, we continue to investigate the underlying physiology of blood pressure and better treatment strategies to control hypertension.
