Neuronal & Circuit Plasticity

Personal Information

Research Interests

What are the mechanisms of neuronal plasticity in the brain? Functional and structural plasticity during perceptual learning. What changes in the brain underlie social learning, and maternal behavior. The auditory system – development, learning and function.   

Dissertation Topics

1. Perceptual Learning:
    a. What are the perceptual boundaries in sensing sounds and smells? 
    b. What are the neural correlates of perceptual learning in primary cortex and association areas?
    c. Which brain circuits are necessary and sufficient for learning and for expert perception?  
2. The social Brain:
    a. How does the brain process complex social cues like mouse vocalizations and social odors?
3. Parental Neuroscience:
    a. What are the behavioral and underlying neural mechanisms of maternal and paternal behavior?
4. Adult Neurogenesis: Why have new neurons in Adult Brains? and How?
