Development and plasticity of sensory systems

Research Description

Our lab studies the neurophysiological, morphological, and molecular biological development and plasticity of the taste system. Specific projects focus on environmental and physiological factors affecting the developing and regenerating taste system, salt taste transduction, matching of gustatory neurons with their targets, the role of immune function in modulating taste function and molecular biological approaches to the development and plasticity of the peripheral gustatory system
