RuCCS Marquee Course Series: Cognition in Sensory Cortex
Abstract: Dr. Smear the neural mechanisms of olfactory function in mice. Mice have an excellent sense of smell – much of their genome encodes odorant receptors (over 1000 genes), and a large portion of their brain processes olfactory information. These neural features support a rich repertoire of olfactory behaviors. His lab interrogates olfactory function with a battery of psychophysical tests, while manipulating and recording neuronal activity with genetics, electrophysiology, and imaging to understand principles of “active” sensing in the brain.
The Marquee Courses have an open-door policy and welcomes all members of the research and learning communities.
