The Neuroplasticity and Learning Research Group (NEPLE) includes researchers interested in learning theory and psychobiology. We all share our interests in investigating the experience-dependent plastic changes in brain circuitry which supports long-lasting changes in behaviour. Our research aims not only to explore the neural basis of learning but also to develop biologically acceptable theoretical models of learning.

Since neural plasticity underlying learning and memory processes occurs in a brain changing throughout  lifespan,  and it can be altered by injury, our group is also interested both in a broad developmental approach and  in exploring functional recovery after brain damage and aging.
