Joseph Sisneros

Research areas

Joseph Sisneros is interested in the behavior and neural mechanisms involved in social acoustic communication. He uses fish as model systems to investigate the adaptive plasticity of the auditory system for social communication. The primary focus of the Sisneros lab is the investigation of seasonal and steroid-dependent changes in the auditory sensitivity of the adult auditory system in the plainfin midshipman fish (Porichthys notatus). A secondary focus of his lab is the investigation of sound source localization by fishes.
