Dr. Castro-Alamancos conducts studies in rodent models to understand how neuronal circuits that process sensory information operate in different behavioral contexts, such as whether a sensory stimulus is new, familiar, or associated with a behaviorally relevant meaning. Understanding the basis for such differences is important for understanding normal behavior as well as conditions associated with impaired sensory processing.
