My lab is interested in the physiological basis of animal behavior. We study how steroid hormone action mediates the production of elaborate behavioral displays in birds throughout North, Central, and South America. Specifically, we focus on the way that androgenic hormones influence neuro‐motor control of complex gestural signals that males readily use for sexual communication and advertisement. To do this research, my students and I combine molecular and genomic techniques, whole‐tissue physiological recordings, hormone manipulations and assays, and observations of wild animals behaving in their natural environment.
