Assistant Professor Alison Barth and graduate student Roger Clem lead a study that indisputably identifies the impact of neural connections in the learning process

Through a clever experimental design, Carnegie Mellon University neuroscientists have validated decades of experiments to show how learning and memory may be encoded in a living animal. The research, published in the March issue of Neuron, identifies for the first time the specific neural connections that strengthen as an animal's brain responds to new experiences.
