Postdoc Project: noradrenergic plasticity in the olfactory system – AMA (4/4)

When mice learn the identity of other mice, they memorize their smell. Based on findings from another lab my adviser had shown that stimulating the release of noradrenalin causes plastic changes in the Main Olfactory Bulb. I used fluorescent imaging to show that such changes already appear at the first synapse that connects the olfactory sensory neurons to the rest of the brain.
