About the Professor:
Dr. William Grisham is a Professor from UCLAs Department of Physiological Science. Since July of 1996, Dr. Grisham coordinated and taught upper division laboratories in Interdepartmental Program in Neuroscience and Biopsychology majors for UCLA. Furthermore, he participated in selection and development of laboratory exercises and computer assisted learning, developed and administered laboratory examinations, and trained and supervised graduate teaching assistants.

About the Professor:
Dr. Franklin Krasne is a Professor from UCLAs Department of Psychology. His goal in this project that was nominated for a Technology in Teaching Award was to create a computer-based exercise for lab courses in neuroscience and behavioral neuroscience that would provide the feel of real scientific research without the need to develop specialized laboratory skills, spend large amounts of time on time-consuming technical procedures, etc.

Memory System, Medial Temporal Lobe Structures and Alzheimer's disease
November 06, 2009

Overview:
- Types of memory and neural substrates
- Structures in medial temporal lobe and their roles in memory
- Alzheimer's disease and effects in these structures

About the Professor:
Dr. Barbara Knowlton is a Professor from the UCLA Department of Psychology since 2004. She is interested in the neural substrates of memory and executive function. In her main line of research, she examines the role of different medial temporal lobe structures in declarative memory. She is also interested in the role of corticostriatal loops in habit learning and would like to further delineate the role of different loops in cognition.
