Kim D. hosted Dr. Eric Fortune for an MCIN talk on the sensorimotor mechanisms of duets in songbirds. It was a great talk and we very much enjoyed hosting Eric!
Our primary goal is to understand the processes that shape evolutionary trajectories. We focus on the mechanisms of convergent evolution of behavioral and morphological traits. We link molecular, neural, and developmental mechanisms to their consequences for organismal phenotypes, and we investigate the neural and hormonal mechanisms of context- or experience-dependent changes in behavior.
