Task Use of a molecular marker of learning and memory to assess effects of 56Fe irradiation on hippocampus-dependent cognition and neurogenesis (Completed)
Last Published:  07/30/20 02:45:15 PM (Central)
Short Title: Molecular Cognition
Responsible HRP Element: Space Radiation
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Using an animal model, we will determine the extent to which low doses of 56Fe irradiation affect cognitive function and will determine if such changes are associated with the alteration of a gene that is associated with learning and memory, or with the production and maturation of newly born neurons.
