Dr Clare Tweedy

Research interests

My PhD explored hippocampal network dysfunction in models of alpha-synucleinopathy using electrophysiological and histochemical techniques, and I am now employed as a postdoctoral Research Fellow in Neuroscience (BBSRC funded) working with Dr Steve Clapcote and Dr Jamie Johnston. I am interested in changes in hippocampal function during ageing and exploration of novel cognitive enhancers.
