Research

I study how the brains of birds encode learned behaviors like song or 
memory for food locations. Particular questions now being studied include 
the neural basis for female song discrimination, and the interplay between 
the hippocampus and other brain areas in spatial memory. I study these 
questions in a variety of species in order to infer how these abilities evolved.
