Computational Neuroanatomy Group – GMU

The Computational Neuroanatomy Group, part of CN3 and the Krasnow Institute for Advanced Studies at George Mason University, is a multidisciplinary research team devoted to the study of basic neuroscience.

We are specifically interested in the description and generation of dendritic morphology, and in its effect on neuronal electrophysiology. In the long term, we seek to create large-scale, anatomically plausible neural networks to model entire portions of a mammalian brain (such as a hippocampal slice, or a cortical column).

It is through science that we prove, but through intuition that we discover.

Flinn Lab – GMU

Director, Jane Flinn

The Flinn Lab is interested in the biological bases of learning and memory. Current research focuses on the role of metals in normal memory and in Alzheimer's disease (AD).

Zinc, iron and copper are all elevated in the plaques found in the brains of people with AD.
