Project Title:Metabolomic profiling of the rat hippocampus across developmental ages and after learning.
Project Type:Neuroscience
Project Summary:The metabolic mechanisms underlying the formation of early-life episodic memories remain poorly characterized. To fill this knowledge gap, we employed an untargeted metabolomic analysis in rats to determine how the hippocampal metabolome changes over the course of post-natal development under basal conditions and following inhibitory avoidance (IA) training, an aversive episodic event. We found that unique metabolomic profiles accompany learning at different ages. Subsequent biochemical and behavioral studies based on unique metabolomic regulations in the infant hippocampus established that infantile learning selectively recruits the glutathione-mediated antioxidant defenses for the formation of infantile memory.
