McGann, John

McGann JohnProfessor John McGann received his B.A. and M.S. in Psychology, and his PhD in Neuroscience from Yale University. He is interested in how the brain understands sensory stimuli from the world around it, and how it adapts its sensory processing based on prior sensory experience. In his lab they work primarily in the rodent olfactory (smell) system, where the neural circuits that process odor stimuli are physically and optically accessible and where breakthroughs in molecular biology permit powerful new experimental techniques. One ubiquitous feature of mammalian sensory systems is that they constantly adapt to their changing sensory environment. In the olfactory system, circuits in the olfactory bulb constantly change their neurochemistry and neurophysiology in response to the odors encountered. One major direction of our research is to explore the mechanisms of these changes and their utility to the animal. His Lab's work has been generously supported by grants from the National Institute on Deafness and other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), an Institute of the NIH. For more information see his laboratory website.
