    Molecular and Neural Architecture of Instinctive Social Behavior in Mice

    Our group studies the molecular architecture of neuronal circuits underlying sex- and species-specific social behaviors in the mouse. We have taken advantage of the molecular and genetic accessibility of the mouse olfactory system to investigate the neuronal logic underlying odorant- and pheromone-mediated signals. Our goal is to understand the basic principles of neuronal circuit function that enable an animal to identify a predator, a potential mate, or a conspecific intruder and to initiate appropriate behavioral responses. We will present recent molecular and electrophysiological data that attempt to uncover the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying instinctive neural and behavioral responses in the mouse.
