Bob and Irina Calin-Jageman, Professors in Neuroscience, recently received another prestigious grant from the National Institute of Mental Health, part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), to continue their research on memory. This $435,000 grant will be used to study the process of forgetting in Aplysia californica, California sea slugs. Read more about the specific research process and its implication on Campus News.
The Calin-Jagemans have several undergraduate students working with them in their lab each semester. This NIH grant is designed for universities with strong undergraduate research programs, and brings recognition to these neuroscience students, and all Dominican students conducting research.
The results of this memory research have been published in five academic journal articles; the results of the new project on forgetting will also be published. These articles are, and will be, open access, so no paid subscriptions to journals are needed. The NIH, and several other federal agencies, publish articles that are results of their grants in PubMed Central and other freely accessible research databases.
