Who I am and why I am qualified to do what I do...

Yup, I'm still around. Since my "Page O' Neuroplasticity" web site was lookin' so old and tattered (well, old anyway), I felt that there were only two options, either update it, or take it down. My attempts to remove the site evoked a surprising flurry of e-mails (OK, at least a steady trickle), during the ensuing weeks, asking where the site had gone and encouraging me to re-establish it. As such, I've struggled to make the time to update the page (who needs sleep anyway?), the process of which is still in ongoing. Regardless, "Page O' Neuroplasticity" maintains much of the original content, but now in a much much more expanded and current format.

However, for those of you who don't know me...
  • I am a Behavioral Neuroscientist working at the research associate level.
  • My research attempts to understand the neural basis of learning and memory.
  • I do this largely through the neurophysiological recording of brain activity, in both rodents and non-human primates.
  • The recording is done at a variety of levels from single units, and unit ensembles, to local field potentials (LFPs) and evoked potentials (EPs).
  • I received my Ph.D. in 1993 and have been working in the learning and memory field since that time.
  • Overall, I have worked in over 6 laboratories, and have collabourated again with an equal number of labs.
  • I have been publishing for over 15 years, and have put out some 30 articles and book chapters on the Hippocampus, Theta, Kindling, LTP and Place Cells.
  • To date, my published work has accumulated over 1000 citations from other authors in the learning and memory field.
  • Currently, I am working in the lab of Wendy Suzuki at the Center for Neural Science at NYU, using tetrodes to record single units, ensemble activity, and LFPs of the medial temporal lobe during associative learning tasks in non-human primates.

I'm always on the market, and never turn down good opportunities, so go ahead and e-mail me at: eric@pageoneuroplasticity.info or checkout my Vitae.
