In my MD thesis I am working on Ndr2-dependent mechanisms of fear memory reconsolidation. My goal is to investigate brain areas and neuronal circuits related to memory specificity with the help of behavioural experiments as well as zif268 immunohistochemistry. Zif268 is an immediate early gene, which has been identified to be related to memory reconsolidation and synaptic plasticity. My work will set the basis to further examine downstream interactions of zif268 and Ndr2 and their relation to autophagy induction in specific neural networks.
