Speaker at International Alzheimer’s Disease & Dementia Conference 2022 - Jianrong Tang
Jianrong Tang
Baylor College of Medicine, United States


Dr. Tang earned his Ph.D. in Physiology from East China Normal University in 1997 and did postdoctoral training at University of Hamburg and Max-Planck Institute of Psychiatry. He is currently an Associate Professor at Baylor College of Medicine. The Tang lab studies the neuronal- and circuit-level mechanisms that give rise to higher brain functions (e.g., memory and motor). We recently found that deep brain stimulation in the fimbria-fornix rescues hippocampal memory, synaptic plasticity, adult neurogenesis, abnormal circuit activities, and gene expression in mouse models of intellectual disability disorders. Dr. Tang has published 35 papers in SCI journals including Nature, Neuron.
