Richard G.M. Morris

University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom 
Learning and Memory, synaptic plasticity
"Richard Morris"

Invented the Morris Water Maze, discovered role of NMDA receptors in spatial learning, co-developer (with J.U.Frey) of the synaptic tagging and capture hypothesis of protein synthesis-dependent long term potentiation; interested in developing novel tasks to investigate memory and then using these in a translational context (e.g. Alzheimer's Disease).

Mean distance: 12.83 (cluster 36)
