Matthew Holahan
Professor, Department of Neuroscience

Phone613-520-2600, ext. 1543

Holahan’s research interests include brain development, memory, addiction and concussions.  The Holahan Lab is currently undertaking research related to the effects of low doses of phthalates on stress and development; the acquisition and expression of remote spatial memories during the juvenile period and how glutamate receptor blockade during development can effect spatial memories; as well as concussion research.

Holahan teaches a course titled Neurodegeneration and Aging, which includes the topic of Alzheimer’s.

Bruce Wallace
Adjunct Research Professor, Department of Systems and Computer Engineering
