Our lab has two major areas of study: we examine (1) the neurophysiological, morphological, and behavioral development of the taste system, and (2) injury induced degeneration and regeneration in the peripheral and central gustatory system. Specific projects focus on environmental, immune, and physiological factors affecting the developing and regenerating taste system, salt taste transduction, and the neural coding of taste information in peripheral and central gustatory neurons.
