The Meeks Lab studies olfactory neural circuits that are involved in establishing and modifying mammalian social behaviors. The current focus of the lab is to understand more about how information about social odors is integrated and refined in the accessory olfactory bulb (AOB). Social odors include both "pheromones" (conspecific chemosignals) and "kairomones" (heterospecific chemosignals).

Our lab utilizes cutting-edge physiological techniques and tools, including patch clamp and single unit electrophysiology, two photon imaging, objective-coupled planar illumination microscopy, and optogenetics.
