My main interest is to understand the mechanisms by which neurotransmitters regulate neuronal activity in the brain and the role of neuromodulation in sensory information processing. Using a combination electrophysiology, imaging and molecular biology techniques, our research seeks to understand how neurons in the olfactory bulb are modulated by chemical signals from other parts of the brain. In addition, we are currently studying how adult generated inhibitory neurons are integrated in the olfactory bulb circuitry.
