Periodic Report 1 - KV CHANNELS & MEMORY (The role of the voltage-gated potassium channels and their modulators in mechanisms of plasticity underlying learning and memory in Drosophila)

Project ID: 200632
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE

Abstract

This is the periodic report for the KV CHANNELS & MEMORY project whose aim was to determine the role of voltage-gated potassium (Kv) channels in mechanisms of plasticity underlying learning and memory using Drosophila. As revealed in the report, completion of the research should provide novel mechanistic insight into how memories are encoded in neural circuits. This research will address fundamental questions regarding neural encoding and storage of information. The study will also help identify molecular targets for future modulation of excitability to attempt to reverse deficits in learning that occur during disease, injury or aging.
