In this webinar, Dr. Simon Gadbois will present information on canine olfactory processing from an integrative perspective: Neurobiology, evolution, ecology, and psychophysics. The webinar will start by discussing the biological foundations of olfaction (neurobiology, evolution, ecology) and will then proceed to discuss the rarely discussed (and yet very active) field of olfactory psychophysics and the methods that are relevant (and also mostly ignored) to olfactory processing. Examples from Gadbois’ areas of research in olfaction (with canines particularly, but also with molluscs, fish, and reptiles) will be discussed in the context of wildlife conservation canines and biomedical detection and diagnosis canines.
