Galan

Postdoc - Roberto Fernánadez Galán Ph.D.

My research is at the juncture between physics -my background- and neurobiology -my vocation. More specifically, my research primarily focuses on understanding biophysical mechanisms for neuronal synchronization and its role in sensory coding. To this end, I study phase-response curves and stochastic synchronization in real neurons, which allows me to construct realistic computer models of neuronal networks, like the olfactory bulb.

Ph.D. student - Ken Hovis

I am a second year graduate student currently working on a project along with Jason Castro examining the spontaneous synaptic activity of mitral cells as a result of activation of group I metabotropic glutamate receptors in the accessory olfactory bulb.

Jimenez

Ph.D. student - Daniel Jimenez

I am interested in the functional integration of stem cells into neural circuits. Our experiments in the olfactory bulb point to ongoing activity as a modulator of the ability of neural stem cells to enter an existing neural system. In order to investigate this we use a variety of techniques including viral transfection, behavior, electrophysiology, and 2 photon in vivo imaging.

Josh Bagley - Former Undergraduate

I study the specification of adult-born neurons into different biochemical subtypes of olfactory bulb neurons such as those expressing calretinin, calbindin, tyrosine-hydroxylase, n-copine, and GABA.  Currently this involves the expression of these markers at different periods from the last division of these newly generated neurons in the adult mouse.
