Yusuke Kishi: The role of epigenome in neurons

Yusuke Kishi, Institute for Quantitative Biosciences, The University of Tokyo

Host: Ana Pombo

What makes me is my memory. Since ancient times, the memory substance of individuals has been one of our greatest mysteries. What we do know now, at least, is that our memories are encoded in the neurons of our brain. Given that the epigenome consists of cellular memory, the epigenome of neurons should encode the memory of individuals. However, the mechanisms of memory formation based on epigenetic regulation in neurons are still unclear. Our laboratory aims to elucidate the memory substance of individuals encoded in the epigenome of neurons.
