Brief description of the main scopes: 

My main goal is to examine the structure and function of the chemosensory systems involved in the formation of different adaptive behaviors of invertebrates (juvenile and adult Lymnaea stagnalis).

Methods: immunohistochemistry, western blot, light microscopy, confocal laser scanning microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, behavior analysis.

Main profile in keywords: 
chemoreception, senso-motor systems, invertebrate neurobiology, adaptation, behavior, chemical ecology
