Dr. Larry R. Squire received his Ph.D. degree from the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology and did postdoctoral
study at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine before coming
to UCSD. His publications include approximately 350 research
articles and two books: Memory and Brain (Oxford Press, 1987)
and Memory: From Mind to Molecules with Eric Kandel (W.H.
Freeman, 1999). He served as President of the Society for
Neuroscience (1993-1994) and is an elected member of the
American Academy of Arts and Sciences, The National Academy of
Sciences, the American Philosophical Society, and The
Institute of Medicine.
Dr. Squire’s research concerns the organization and structure
of mammalian memory (humans and rodents) at the level of
neural systems and cognition. A part of the research involves
studies of identified neurological patients with impaired
memory. The research program also involves rodents,
particularly with respect to questions about the anatomy of
memory and the function of the brain systems that support
memory. In addition, the facility for functional imaging at
UCSD is affording the possibility of studying brain systems of
human memory in normal volunteers.
Consultation for neuropsychological evaluation of memory
impairment, effects of electroconvulsive therapy on memory,
and other kinds of behavioral assessment.
