Description

We are interested in evolutionary changes in the nervous system and behavior. How do these changes occur? How does brain evolution affect behavioral evolution? As a model system, our research focuses on the olfactory system and olfactory-guided behavior in amphibians.

 

Most of our current studies involve axolotls, Ambystoma mexicanum, and goldfish, Carassius auratus. We use a combination of techniques and approaches, including behavioral observation, electrophysiology, neuroanatomy, molecular biology, and developmental manipulation.
