Hugo Lehmann is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at Trent University, Peterborough, ON, Canada, with expertise in the field of neurobiology of learning and memory, brain insult, and recovery, as well as neurogenesis. His research, however, predominantly focuses on determining the specific contributions of the hippocampus to long-term memory. He has published several papers demonstrating that the hippocampus, contrary to common memory consolidation views, has a lasting contribution in the organization of long-term memory. He has also findings suggesting that long-term memories can become increasingly resistant to brain damage, particularly extensive hippocampal damage, through a reinstatement process. His research involves animal models of amnesia and a range of neuroscience techniques including, permanent brain lesions, reversible brain lesions, and immunohistochemistry.
