The Zuker Lab is interested in the mechanisms underlying signal processing and information transfer in sensory systems. They use the mammalian taste system and the gut-brain axis to understand how the brain modulates body physiology. Taste behaviors are exquisitely modulated by the internal state (e.g. hunger, satiety, emotion, and expectation), thus they provide a powerful model for the dissection of brain circuits integrating the senses with our physiological and emotional states. Similarly, the gut-brain axis informs the brain of the state of body tissues, organs, and physiology. For more information about the Zuker lab and their research, please visit .
