Bruce McNaughton joins UC Irvine
Bruce McNaughton, one of the foremost experts on the brain mechanisms underlying memory storage and cognition, has joined the Francisco J. Ayala School of Biological Sciences as a Distinguished Professor of neurobiology & behavior.
He joins three other biological sciences faculty members with the Distinguished Professor title â€” one of the campusâ€™s highest academic ranks â€” and is one of only 28 campus-wide to receive this designation.
â€œItâ€™s a great honor to recruit such a prominent scholar as Dr. McNaughton,â€ said Frank LaFerla, the Hana & Francisco J. Ayala Dean of the Ayala School of Biological Sciences. â€œHis recruitment adds to the rich and strong tradition of neuroscience research at UC Irvine, and many investigators on campus are looking forward to collaborating with his laboratory.â€
McNaughtonâ€™s work integrates theory, computational modeling and technological development to decode the neural mechanisms of learning and memory, and his research contributions have significantly advanced the understanding of memory.
