David Glanzman

David Glanzman's laboratory is interested in the cell biology of learning and memory in simple organisms. Their research uses two animals, the marine snail Aplysia californica, and the zebrafish (Danio rerio). They are using electrophysiological, genetic, and imaging techniques to analyze the mechanisms of habituation and sensitization of the startle reflex.
