Professor Emeritus Elizabeth Adkins-Regan, PI

Cornell University
Ithaca, New York, USA

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