The general aim of the lab is to study how taste information is processed in the brain to guide feeding-related behavior, and how this processing changes with experience. Specifically, we aim to reveal the changes in the single neurons coding schemes, the network connectivity, and the neuronal ensemble dynamics that support memories. In addition, we also study the impact of social interactions on feeding decision-making and its neuronal underpinning, as well as early memory impairments in rodent models of Alzheimer’s disease.
