Research Interests

My laboratory is studying mammalian olfactory system with a focus on the olfactory cortex.
We use rodents (rats and mice) and the non-human primate (Rhesus monkeys) as the model systems.
Current interests include:
1. Organization of olfactory cortex and central olfactory circuit of the brain.
2. Olfactory perception and odor-induced emotion.
3. Olfactory disfunction and neurodegenerative diseases.
