  • Amy Griffin, Associate Professor

    Associate Professor
    University of Delaware
    113 Wolf Hall
    Newark, DE 19716


    Dr. Amy Griffin received her Ph.D. in 2003 from Miami University, where she studied neural activity patterns underlying rabbit classical conditioning under the direction of Stephen Berry.  For her post-doctoral work, Dr. Griffin had a joint appointment in the laboratories of Michael Hasselmo and Howard Eichenbaum in the Center for Memory and Brain at Boston University recording populations of single hippocampal neurons during memory task performance in rats, supported through an NRSA postdoctoral fellowship from the National Institutes of Mental Health.  In 2007, Dr. Griffin joined the University of Delaware Psychology Department.  The focus of her research program is exploring the neural mechanisms of memory using two main approaches: investigating the effects of discrete brain region inactivation on memory task performance and the recording of populations of single neurons in freely moving rats during memory tasks. Together, these approaches are aimed at discovering the neural mechanisms driving memory-guided behavior.​
