Biography

Dr. Datta's research focuses on neural circuits that trigger fixed action pattern behaviors in response to socially-relevant odors (such as those from food, predators and mates); the laboratory leverages the invariance of the underlying neural circuits to understand how sensory cues are coupled to behavioral output centers in higher brain, which in turn reveals principles used by genes to specify behaviors.
