Dr Lorenzo More

Senior Lecturer in NeuroscienceSchool of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences

Lorenzo works in the field of behavioural genetics and molecular cognition. His research's final aim is to understand the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying learning and memory and thus how the brain stores, retrieves and modifies information. He exploits environmental enrichment (EE) models, which are known to provide the mammal brain with a "cognitive reserve" in order to shed light on the complex molecular machinery involved in environment adaptation and enhanced cognition.
