Jacob Wilmot

Jacob_WilmotI recently graduated from the University of Delaware with degrees in Biology and Neuroscience. There, I became interested in dissecting the neural circuitry involved in forming and storing episodic memories. In the Fall of 2015 I joined the Wiltgen lab as a Biological Psychology PhD student.

Currently, my research interests broadly include using cellular and genetic methods to study episodic and contextual memory. I am particularly interested in studying the consolidation of hippocampus-dependent memories into hippocampus-independent memories stored in the neocortex. In my spare time, I enjoy tennis, music, cooking and eating, and exploring.
