Research Summary

My research is aimed toward a better understanding of the neural and behavioral function of the olfactory system, and how it interacts with the other senses to interpret our environment in health and disease. To this end, several different lines of ongoing research explore various aspects of these questions using a wide range of experimental methods, including psychophysical and behavioral tests, functional brain imaging (fMRI and EEG/ERP), structural brain imaging, and psychophysiological measures. In addition, the lab is actively developing novel ways to deliver olfactory stimuli (olfactometers) and to measure olfactory performance and neural processing.
