Research in NSB
Peter Balsam (firstname.lastname@example.org) is exploring how animals learn about time and use it to guide behavior. He also studies the neural mechanisms that underlie this capacity.
Elizabeth Bauer (email@example.com) is investigating the neurophysiological underpinnings of emotions and memory.
BJ Casey (firstname.lastname@example.org) is exploring neurobiological changes during the extended period of adolescence related to emotion and cognition and their implication for justice policy.
Maria de la Paz Fernandez (email@example.com) researches the neural mechanisms underlying aggressive behavior and territoriality, and the relation between the circadian clock and social behaviors.
John Glendinning (firstname.lastname@example.org) is examining how input from different chemosensory systems (taste, tactile, odor and viscerosensory) modulates feeding responses of animals.
Gabrielle Gutierrez (email@example.com) creates computational models to understand how the properties of individual neurons affect, for example, the retina’s ability to transmit high-fidelity visual information, or a motor circuit to produce coordinated rhythmic movement, or a neural circuit to adapt to changing inputs.
Russell Romeo (firstname.lastname@example.org) focuses on how gonadal sex hormones and adrenal stress hormones influence the pubertal maturation of the nervous system and behavior.
Rae Silver (email@example.com) is examining hormonal control of reproductive behavior and circadian rhythms in behavior.
Alex White (firstname.lastname@example.org) studies visual perception and attention, with a focus on how the human brain recognizes written words.
