The long term goals of research conducted in our laboratory is to understand more fully the vertebrate olfactory system. Dr. Morrison’s research spans development, morphology and distribution of the sensory olfactory neuroepithelium, neurophysiology and signal transduction of the olfactory receptor neuron, regenerating and replacement of olfactory receptor neurons, inflammation and pathogen entry into olfactory system and CNS neurophysiological responses to odors as studied using fMRI. Research efforts have been supported by Auburn University, NIH, DHS, ONR, Alhezimers Association.
