I am interested in the neuronal circuits involved with learning and memory processes. I use behavioral paradigms and electrophysiology to investigate synaptic plasticity in piriform and orbitofrontal cortices following odor learning. I am also interested in scientific broadcast journalism targeted toward children.

Adam's research focused on the microcircuitry of piriform cortex, specifically mapping out the inhibitory connections between the many interneuron subtypes within the anterior piriform through optogenetics and ex vivo whole cell recordings. He investigated how inhibitory connections can modulate activity, through Targeted Recombination of Active Populations (TRAP) – a transgenic technology with a activity and drug dependent expression of a reporter gene. Adam successfully defended his thesis in April 2017 with three manuscripts and many more contributions to future lab studies. Congratulations on a job well done!
Adam went on to postdoctoral position at U. Wisconsin
