Bio-Neuro Seminar: Dr. Annaleise Beery, Smith College: "Life in groups: the neurochemistry of sociality"
Open to the Public
Seminar by Dr. Annaleise Beery, Associate Professor, Smith College, Psychology and Biology Departments; Neuroscience Program: Research in our lab relates to the neurobiology and evolution of mammalian social behavior, particularly social behaviors underlying life in groups. While the neural mechanisms underlying monogamy and parental behavior have been the focus of intense study, much less is known about the mechanisms supporting non-reproductive social behavior between peers. We research factors underlying sociality in seasonally social meadow voles, multiple social and solitary tuco tuco species, and naked mole-rats. Other studies in the lab examine how environmental factors alter individual biology and behavior.
Lunch available at 12:15pm. Sponsored by the Biology Department and Neuroscience Program www.middlebury.edu/academics/bio
