Our paper investigating the effects of odor exposure on the physiology of olfactory sensory neurons was published in today's issue of the Journal of Neuroscience. Congratulations to Marley Kass, the lead author!


Our recent paper on the effects of olfactory deprivation on the physiology of olfactory sensory neurons was featured on the cover of this month's Chemical Senses. Congratulations to Marley Kass, the lead author.


We are already planning for this Fall's Flavor and Fragrance Symposium at Rutgers. It is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 12, and all are welcome.


Looks like our presentation at the Flavors, Fragrances, and Perception Symposium was discussed on a taste and nutrition blog. Thanks for the kind words!


We are pleased to be affiliated with Rutgers' new Center for Sensory Sciences & Innovation. Dr. McGann will be speaking at the Center's inaugural Flavors, Fragrances, and Perception Symposium tomorrow.


Our paper demonstrating that intranasal exposure to manganese can disrupt synaptic signaling in the central nervous system is now published in the journal Neurotoxicology. Congratulations to Andrew Moberly and Lindsey Czarnecki, the co-first authors!


We are pleased to announce that Professor McGann has won the Award for Distinguished Contributions to Undergraduate Education at Rutgers. Congratulations!


Our paper showing the rehabilitation of olfactory function after cadmium-induced neurotoxicity is now published in Toxicological Sciences. Congratulations to Lindsey Czarnecki, the first author!


Look for us at the Society for Neuroscience Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., starting tomorrow.


Our paper demonstrating the utility of our imaging methods for assessing the neurotoxic effects of chemicals in the nose is now published in Neurotoxicology. Congratulations to Lindsey Czarnecki, the first author!


We are happy to welcome our newest graduate student, Marley Kass, who got an early start today before her September matriculation in our PhD program in Behavioral Neuroscience. Marley come to us from Seton Hall, where she earned a Master's degree in Experimental Psychology.


We found a good use for the empty space where the Rm. 316 vestibule used to be before it was bricked up as part of the renovations. Now it houses a microscope for fluorescence imaging from immunohistochemically-labeled tissue. Yes, those are cement blocks from Home Depot. CLICK HERE.


We finally have a functioning tank farm in the wet lab, where tanks containing compressed air, nitrogen, etc, are hooked into a network of pipes that distribute these gases throughout the rest of the laboratory.Check It Out.


We have our first imaging rig up and running. This apparatus allows us to watch the patterns of neural input to the mouse olfactory bulb when a living, breathing mouse smells an odor. To see it, CLICK HERE.


We've finally moved into the renovated laboratory space! They're still putting the finishing touches on it, but we can get our equipment up and running. For some before and after pictures of the renovation, CLICK HERE.


Look for us at the Society for Neuroscience Annual Meeting in Chicago on Sunday! Sneha will be presenting her first scientific poster, on the representation of odorant concentration in the olfactory bulb.


The lab renovations are approaching completion at long last. The new walls are done, the plumbing is almost complete, and the casework (the cabinets and benches) were delivered this morning. Check out the tractor trailer that delivered the case work this morning HERE.


Welcome to Lindsey Czarnecki, our new PhD student in Rutgers Psychology! Lindsey joins us from her master's degree program at Seton Hall, and we are very happy to have her aboard.


We're hiring! We're looking for a postdoctoral associate with experience in neurophysiology, behavioral experimentation, or related fields to join us in our research. Please look at our advertisement here


The move is done at last, and we are now ensconced in the Psychology Department at Rutgers. Renovations to the new lab space are underway (sorry about the jackhammers, everyone)!


We're moving! We're very pleased to announce that we will be moving to the Psychology Department at Rutgers University late this summer.


Look for us at the Society for Neuroscience Annual Meeting in Washington, DC on Nov. 15 presenting data on how the sorptive properties of an odor and nasal airflow interact to shape the representation of odors in the brain.
