The UC Irvine Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory (CNLM) was established by the UC Regents in 1983 with James L. McGaugh as its Founding Director and is the first research institute in the world dedicated exclusively to the multidisciplinary study of learning and memory mechanisms in the brain. Our internationally recognized CNLM faculty use state-of-the-art approaches integrating cellular/molecular, systems and cognitive neuroscience to investigate learning and memory. Our research programs have direct impact on education, technology, and brain health.
