Research Interests: My lab and I are interested in how the mammalian brain processes and remembers information. As a model system we focus on discrimination and memory for odors in rodents. Using electrophysiological, behavioral, neuroanatomical and pharmacological approaches, we explore the neurobiology of memory and the role of experience in sensory system function. The underlying hypothesis of much of our work is that memory plays a critical role in even basic sensory discrimination. In addition, we are interested in how experience early in life can influence sensory system functional development. For example, we are interested in how disruptions of even very simple neural mechanisms during early development can lead to a cascade of long-lasting consequences for brain and behavior.
