Research Interests:

Our laboratory studies olfactory perception in rodents as it is affected by wiring (anatomy and biophysics of the olfactory receptors and olfactory bulb) and learning, experience and context. We use chronic recording of neural activity in laboratory rats and mice (single unit, multi-unit and local field potential) from many areas of the olfactory and limbic systems, including the olfactory bulb, pyriform cortex, entorhinal cortex, hippocampus and amygdala. Our recordings are done during execution of operant and other behavioral tasks. Some experiments also address odor psychophysics and the influence of respiratory behavior upon central and peripheral mechanisms.
