RESEARCH INTERESTS

Sensory experience has effects on both physiological responses and animal behavior. I am interested in how odors induce plasticity in the first central relay of the olfactory system, which is the olfactory bulb. This structure is one of the few brain areas that continuously replaces parts of its neuronal population, and I focus on how adult neurogenesis is modulated by odor exposure or associative learning. Presently, I am exploring how olfactory behavior is influenced by the central nervous system neuromodulators acetylcholine and noradrenaline, both of which have been implicated in memory deficits such as those symptomatic of Alzheimer’s disease.
