The Sisneros Lab studies the adaptive plasticity of the auditory system for the encoding of behaviorally relevant social signals used during communication.

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.
