Janina SeubertJanina Seubert is a research associate with a focus on human olfactory perception, affective processing and multisensory integration. As her main experimental methods, she uses functional and structural MRI recordings and relates them to psychophysical, behavioral, and epidemiological data on olfactory function in health and disease.

The goal of her research is to understand the neural networks which permit the identification of smells in the environment and the assessment of their behavioral relevance. A particular focus is hereby placed on the role of these networks for the maintenance of human health, as related to, for example, disease avoidance and appetite regulation.

Janina completed her doctoral work in 2010 as a member of the International Research Training Group “Brain-behavior relationship of emotion and social cognition in schizophrenia and autism”, at RWTH Aachen University, Germany and the University of Pennsylvania, USA. In her thesis, she compared the effects of affective odor evaluations on the recognition of facial emotions in the healthy population and patients with schizophrenia. Subsequently, she completed three years of postdoctoral training with Dr. Johan Lundström at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia, funded by a fellowship of the German Research Foundation (DFG), where she was further trained in experimental assessment of smell and taste function, studying the neural correlates of olfactory cognition and their relevance for multisensory integration during food perception.

In 2014, Janina moved to Stockholm and joined ARC, where she is currently responsible for analysis of the olfactory portion of the SNAC-K project. In particular, she is investigating the neural correlates of olfactory decline in an aging population, the relevance of these neural markers as early markers for neurodegenerative disease and cognitive decline, as well as their relationship with risk alleles for pathological changes during the aging process.
