Description: NIH Neuroscience Series Seminar

Dr. Stowers lab is studying how cues in the environment are detected and transformed into electrical activity in the brain to generate behavior. They are identifying the coding logic of all aspects of the system: (1) specific pheromone chemosignals that generate stereotypic behavior; (2) sensory neurons that detect pheromones and other specialized chemosignals; (3) the neural and molecular mechanisms in the brain that result in stereotypic behavior.

They are studying several independent stereotypic behaviors in the mouse: male-male aggression, pup-suckling, inter-species fear, female reproductive behavior, and scent marking. Analysis of these behaviors in parallel will enable them to determine the neural mechanisms that specify each behavior as well as the common mechanisms that underlie general principles of stereotypic behavior.

Abstract: (CIT): Dr. Stowers' lab is studying how cues in the environment are detected and transformed into electrical activity in the brain to generate behavior. They are identifying the coding logic of all aspects of the system: (1) specific pheromone chemosignals that generate stereotypic behavior; (2) sensory neurons that detect pheromones and other specialized chemosignals; (3) the neural and molecular mechanisms in the brain that result in stereotypic behavior. They are studying several independent stereotypic behaviors in the mouse: male-male aggression, pup-suckling, inter-species fear, female reproductive behavior, and scent marking. Analysis of these behaviors in parallel will enable them to determine the neural mechanisms that specify each behavior as well as the common mechanisms that underlie general principles of stereotypic behavior.
