Impact of experience-driven dopaminergic plasticity on olfactory processing


  • Dr Elisa Galliano

    King's College London

Project summary

Elisa will spend the coming four years investigating experience-driven plasticity in bulbar dopaminergic interneurons and the effects of such plastic modifications on the first synapse in olfaction and on olfactory behaviour. While being mostly based at King's College London working with Dr Matthew Grubb, she will also spend some time in the Cragg (University of Oxford), Murthy (Harvard University) and Lledo (Institut Pasteur, Paris) laboratories to tackle the different parts of her project. The mentorship of Professor Gordon Shepherd (Yale University) will help in interpreting and synthesising the data collected in the different laboratories.
