Dr. Robert Hampson is Professor of Physiology and Pharmacology at Wake Forest University School of Medicine. He conducts research on the processes by which memories are encoded within the mammalian brain and on developing new ways to detect, manipulate and even restore memories in people suffering from conditions such as Alzheimer’s Disease that affect the normal memory storage process. He works closely with Neurologists and Neurosurgeons in studying memory to develop a prosthetic system for restoration of human memory. Dr. Hampson also teaches courses on science communication with a particular focus on the interpretation of science for public outreach.
