Research update February 2018

This month we got a new paper published in Physiology and Behavior!

Impact of high sucrose diets on the discrimination of spatial and object memories with overlapping features

We examined how rats fed a high sugar diet were able to remember objects and places when they were perceptually similar. We found that both object and place memories were impaired by drinking a sugar solution.

A huge achievement by my honours students Cem, Mili and Tanya, and my research assistant Madhavi in this research!
