Kristin Scott

Professor

UC Berkeley

Dr. Scott studies taste recognition in the fruit fly, to examine how sensory information is processed by the brain.

She uses a combination of molecular, genetic, electrophysiological and behavioral approaches to study taste circuits. Her aims are to understand how different tastes are distinguished by the brain and how taste percepts and behaviors are modified by experience.
