The Sisneros Lab studies the adaptive plasticity of sensory systems for the encoding of behaviorally relevant signals used during social behavior.

We use fish as model systems to investigate ontogenetic and steroid-dependent seasonal changes in the response properties and function of the auditory system.

We are also interested in sound source localization and how fishes detect and locate underwater sound sources in both relatively simple and complex acoustic environments.
