General information

The Wagenaar Lab is part of the Sensory Biology, Behavior & Evolution (SBBE) group within the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Cincinnati. We study the neuronal basis of sensory processing and sensory-guided behavior, with a specific focus on crossmodal sensory integration in the leech and on functional and anatomical circuit mapping.


April 2016. Opportunities for postdocs!

Opportunities for two postdocs are available in the lab. If you are interested, or know someone who might be a good match, please contact Dr Wagenaar at any time.

April 2016. The lab is moving

In the summer of 2016, the lab will be moving back to Caltech, where Dr Wagenaar will lead the newly formed Neurotechnology Center. While I am very excited about this move and the new opportunities it will bring, I am also sad to leave many wonderful colleagues behind in Cincinnati. Here’s to continued collaboration!
