Prof. Jorge Palop

Dr. Palop is an Associate Professor at the Gladstone Institutes and UCSF. Dr. Palop’s research aims to identify the molecular, circuit and network mechanisms underlying cognitive dysfunction in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Dr. Palop discovered that AD results in aberrant network hypersynchrony and inhibitory GABAergic dysfunctions that lead to brain oscillatory alterations and behavioral abnormalities. His program is developing novel therapeutic approaches for restoring brain functions by enhancing inhibitory functions.
