Description: Neuroscience Seminar Series

The goal of Dr. Wilson’s lab is to understand how sensory information is processed by neural circuits and to describe the mechanisms that underlie sensory processing. Specifically, her research is directed towards understanding olfactory processing in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. Dr. Wilson has developed new tools for studying electrical activity in the fly brain which have enabled her apply electrophysiological techniques to gain detailed insight into how olfactory circuits are organized and how they process information efficiently. Dr. Wilson has received numerous honors and awards in recognition of her work, including the Eppendorf and Science Award (2007), a MacArthur Fellowship (2008), an HHMI Early Career Scientist Award (2009), and the Society for Neuroscience Young Investigator Award (2010).
