I am Reiko Uenoyama, a PhD student in Laboratory of Biomolecular Science (Prof. Masao Miyazaki's lab) at United Graduate School of Agricultural Sciences, Iwate University, Japan.

My main interest is in the chemical basis, biological function, and molecular mechanism of species-specific behavior evoked by odorants, especially the unique response of cats to catnip and silver vine.
