Animal behaviors emerge in response to external stimuli and are contingent on internal state. Our research aims to elucidate mechanisms underlying the brain’s control of specific behavioral responses through integration of external sensory stimuli and internal endocrine state. To achieve this goal, the lab conducts two independent yet interconnected research programs in the fields of sensory neuroscience and molecular endocrinology using rodent models.
