How is epigenetics involved in the auditory system’s role in learning and memory?

Project specs




Kasia Bieszczad




The CLEF Laboratory studies how our experiences shape our brain function to enable learning and long-term memory by investigating the interactions between levels of neurobiological inquiry that span genes, molecules, circuits, systems, and —ultimately — behavior.

Researcher Profile

The CLEF Laboratory, for “Cortex, Learning, Epigenetics, and Function”, is comprised of a team of undergraduate, graduate, postdoctoral, and research faculty led by Dr. Kasia M. Bieszczad who together investigate broadly the neurobiology of learning & memory, auditory system circuits, functions & functional reorganization with experience, and their connection with molecular epigenetics and the genomic underpinnings of behavior.
