Alice Accoroni, Lindau Alumna 2015, studied medicine and recently graduated as a physician at the University of Pisa. Currently, she is a first-year PhD student at Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, Pisa. She is interested in exploring the molecular mechanisms of learning and memory in both physiological and pathological conditions. In particular, she combines several electrophysiological techniques to characterise the circuitry involved in memory formation and retrieval and to identify the pathological alterations that occur in Alzheimer’s disease. Alice was also a young scientist at #LiNo15.
