Gordon Shepherd has carried out fundamental studies of the integrative properties of dendrites, dendritic spines, and synaptic microcircuits, using the olfactory bulb as a model system. His contributions include the first physiologically-based circuit diagram of a brain region; electrophysiological analysis and computational prediction with Wilfrid Rall of dendrodendritic synaptic interactions for feedback and lateral inhibition; discovery of the representation of odors by spatial activity patterns in the olfactory glomerular layer; and databases and neuroinformatics tools for dendritic properties, computational neuronal models, and brain microcircuits. Among his books are The Synaptic Organization of the Brain (5th ed), Neurobiology (3rd ed), Foundations of the Neuron Doctrine, Creating Modern Neuroscience, and Handbook of Brain Microcircuits.

Keywords:   olfactory bulb, circuit diagram, dendrodendritic synapses, olfaction, microcircuits
