About PROMEMO

The Center for Proteins in Memory, PROMEMO, is part of the Department of Biomedicine at Aarhus University and is funded by the Danish National Research Foundation. 

PROMEMO aims to identify and understand the function of memory associated proteins that determines the persistence of a memory. To reach this aim, scientists combine cutting-edge techniques in proteomics, complex structural biology, optogenetic memory engineering of tailored mouse models, electrophysiology of synaptic memory function, and high-resolution brain imaging in behaving animals.

PROMEMO expect that these studies will help explain fundamental traits of cognition, emotion, and learning. In a longer perspective, understanding memory-associated proteins may help identifying molecular targets for memory-associated disorders such as anxiety, depression, and dementia.
