Neuroendocrine mechanisms of social and reproductive behaviors
I am broadly interested in the neuroendocrine mechanisms of behavior. My research uses behavioral, physiological, and molecular techniques to understand how information about the social environment (external stimuli) is integrated with information about an animal's physiological state (internal stimuli) to produce behavior that is context-appropriate over both short and long timescales. In my recent work, I have addressed how sex hormones rapidly influence social behavior and reproductive physiology in goldfish via membrane-associated estrogen receptors, and how stress hormones influence the energetics and neural mechanisms of communication behavior in male frogs.
