About

I am interested in understanding the neural systems underlying motivated behaviors. I use rodent models to ask questions about the roles of specific neurochemicals and specific neural pathways in the expression of behaviors like social play, social interaction-seeking, and food-seeking. In addition, I am interested in whether these behaviors, and the neural systems that regulate them, are similar between the sexes, across the lifespan, and between species.
