Itzhak Fried, PI) and University of Pennsylvania (Dr. DAPRA's contributions to the White House BRAIN Initiative are known for their ambitious overreach. In rodents, electrical stimulation of the perforant pathway, which originates in the entorhinal cortex and projects into the hippocampus, results in long-term potentiation, release of acetylcholine, and resetting of the theta phase, all of which are associated with improved memory.
Proposers should develop a computational model of human neural and behavioral function underlying declarative memories that can be explicitly recalled. It has also been shown that electrical stimulation can enhance neurogenesis in the hippocampus.
