Excited to share our latest work - we use pan-neuronal 2 photon imaging to dissect how the #brain integrates multiple internal states to guide #food #choice! Fantastic work by @Dahaniel who took on this challenging project almost solo! #drosophila biorxiv.org/content/10.110… 1/21
We wanted to know what changes in the brain when animals #crave #foods. How do different internal states interact to change neuronal processing of #food #taste to alter feeding decisions? And can we use neurogenetics to identify causal brain regions driving food choice? 2/21
We had shown that when flies are protein deprived they increase their preference for protein-rich food like yeast. Food taste is key when deciding what to eat. But does the metabolic state alter taste processing and how do internal states change decisions? 3/21

As a clinician trained in chemosensation, early reports of taste and smell loss with #COVID19 piqued my curiosity, and I knew it was something that needed attention. loom.ly/koHJu8Y Image
An NIH librarian (who knew what my lab studied) reached out and helped us tremendously by curating the literature on taste and smell. I am still using those resources to develop a #COVID19 #taste and #smell long-hauler study.
A few colleagues and I started a consortium in March 2020 to understand more on #tasteloss and #smellloss with #COVID19. Read our paper here: loom.ly/27YY_VM Image

#Covid19 cases 🤧 are on the rise and we have been getting a lot of questions about #covid19 which is totally understandable. We will try to answer a few of them in this thread #gp #portmarnock 1/n 👍
If you think you have #Covid19 (ANY of #cough, #breathlessness, #fever, lack of #smell or #taste) CALL YOUR GP 👩‍🦰🧑‍🦱 and we we can arrange a Covid swab for you if needed 2/n
If you are a close contact of a confirmed Covid 🦠 case you need to isolate for 14 DAYS from your contact with the person.

Public health will call you & arrange a test for you. GPs DO NOT arrange these #Covid19 tests as follow up swabbing, contact tracing etc may be needed 3/n

People sick with #COVID19 report losing their sense of taste or smell. Take a look at these google search trends.. #anosmia
Together with a group of other experts; scientists, clinicians and patient advocates @GcChemosensR, I wondered…🤔
Is it #taste or #smell, because they are so easily confused? Even by experts...

Hi everyone. For @pintofscienceau, I’ve been asked to introduce myself and what I do. Well, hi - I’m Daniel and I am a statistical geneticist who is interested in chemosensory perception (i.e. #taste & #smell) and #ThisIsMyScience. #OurBody (1/5)
Loss of smell is observed in patients with #COVID19, the recent pandemic that has spread to almost every country on Earth. However, existing reports have downplayed or failed to distinguish the potential effect on taste and other oral sensations. #ThisisMyScience (2/5)
We, @GCChemosensoryR, design a multi-lingual, international questionnaire to assess self-reported changes in the perception of smell, taste, and oral sensations and related symptoms in patients with a COVID-19 diagnosis. #ThisisMyScience (3/5)

So, some positive news. I’m excited to announce that I will step in as Editor-in-Chief of the journal Chemical Senses as of April 1. So, here are a few reasons you should consider submitting your manuscript to #ChemicalSenses, as well as some new initiatives. (Please RT) 1/
#ChemicalSenses is the leading journal focused on research in all areas of chemosensation in humans and other vertebrate and invertebrate animals, including #olfaction, #taste, #chemesthesis, internal chemosensation and chemical ecology. 2/
#ChemicalSenses is the official journal of @AChemsinfo, @ECRO_online, the Japanese Association for the Study of Taste & Smell (JASTS), the Australasian Association for ChemoSensory Science (AACSS), and the Korean Society for Chemical Senses & Ingestive Behaviour (KSCSIBF). 3/
