About Us

The Boston University Center for Memory and Brain (CMB) was established as a center of excellence in research, training, and teaching in the cognitive neuroscience of memory. The CMB is composed of faculty within the Departments of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Biology, Mathematics. The small core group of neuroscientists that compose the CMB complement each other in technical abilities and share the specific interest of characterizing brain mechanisms of memory. The CMB is unique in close working relations among its faculty in a continuity of expertise across the levels of analysis of memory. We pursue complementary and collaborative studies aimed at describing the “circuit diagram” for memory in the human brain, and we teach at all levels and train neuroscientists in this field.

Core Members:

Howard Eichenbaum, Director, Center for Memory and Brain; William Fairfield Warren Distinguished Professor, is an internationally recognized leader in neuropsychology of memory in animals and characterization of memory coding properties of neurons.

Michael Hasselmo, Associate Director, Center for Memory and Brain; Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences; Director, Center for Systems Neuroscience, is an internationally known leader in  computationaland experimental analyses of neural circuits that mediate memory and in the pharmacology of memory.

Nancy Kopell, Professor of Mathematics, is an expert on neural dynamics, and is especially interested in neural rhythms and their functions.

Chantal E Stern, Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences and faculty member at the MGH-NMR Center, is an expert in human brain imaging of memory systems.
