Timothy Bussey and Lisa Saksida are PIs in the Translational Cognitive Neuroscience Lab (TCNLab). The driving force behind all of the work in the lab is exactly as the name suggests: a desire to understand the neuroscience of cognition, and to facilitate translation of that understanding from animal models to humans and back again. Historically their interest has been in the basic research question: What is the organization, and what are the mechanisms, underlying cognition in the brain? They like to think they have come up with some answers, but to do so, they needed to develop some new methodologies … some of which you can learn more about by visiting their website (TCNLab).
