The Sisneros Lab studies the adaptive plasticity of the auditory system for encoding social acoustic signals.

We use fish as model systems to investigate ontogenetic and reproductive-state dependent changes in 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.

*** The Sisneros & Stone Labs are recruiting a shared Ph.D. student in Psychology for fall 2021 focusing on

      how estrogen regulates molecular changes in the auditory sensitivity of the vocal plainfin midshipman.
