Find out about this book…

Prof. Elizabeth Adkins-Regan, PI

Cornell University
Ithaca, New York, USA

Research supported by NSF

The Adkins-Regan lab studies hormonal and neural mechanisms of behavior from a comparative and evolutionary perspective. A major focus is the reproductive and other social behavior of birds, including courtship, mate choice, pair formation, mating behavior, parental behavior and aggression. The integrative research program lies at the intersection of behavioral neuroscience (especially behavioral neuroendocrinology) and animal behavior/behavioral ecology.
