Department of Behavioral & Cognitive Biology

We study behavioral and cognitive traits from the multiple perspectives of mechanism, function, development and evolutionary history. Our research centers around questions about cognitive and communicative processes, the endocrine and genetic control of behavior, and the influence of ecological and environmental factors on behavioral phenotypes. We work on a variety of vertebrate species and we conduct studies under controlled lab- and ecologically valid field conditions.
