Shahid ZamanMD, PsyD
Dr Shahid Zaman is a consultant psychiatrist and a neuroscientist who has published in the following areas: the molecular pharmacology of GABAA receptors, neurosteroids, hippocampal synaptic plasticity (long-term potentiation), familial Alzheimer’s disease (presenilin) and female autism.
He is interested in understanding the neuronal mechanisms that underlie deficits in learning and memory in people with intellectual disabilities and exploring ways of ameliorating or treating these. I am currently involved in research in dementia in Down’s syndrome. There are plans to explore the role of sleep in memory and learning in this population.
