Our research focuses on the biological/neuroendocrine basis of behavior. Specifically, we examine the development of learning and cognition, the neuroendocrinology and psychophysiology of stress, and the role of neural and endocrine processes in: reproduction, attachment between individuals, and social behavior. Further, we examine how these processes change during development. Follow the links below for each faculty member to discover more thorough descriptions of our research programs.
