Research Interests

We study group-living rodents to learn about pathways supporting affiliative social behavior between peers. A second focus is the study of mechanisms (epigenetic and otherwise) by which experience changes the brain and behavior
Major research areas include:
Neural substrates of non-sexual affiliative behavior
Gene-environment interactions and brain development
Neuropeptides and sociality
Fetal programming by gestational daylength
