Loss of Maternal Care in Cowbirds

In cowbirds, maternal care has been lost in species that exhibit brood parasitism where females place their eggs in the nests of other bird species. We are collaborating with Prof Kathleen Lynch at Hofstra University (New York, USA) to examine the neural basis of maternal behavior in cowbirds.

Neural Basis of Behavior in Anole Lizards

Anole lizards display remarkable variation in behavior and physiology within and between sexes. We are collaborating with Prof David Kabelik (Rhodes College, Memphis, TN, USA) to study the neural basis of sex-typical behaviors in anole lizards.
