Neurobiology and Behaviour

Summary

The Neurobiology and Behaviour Group has internationally leading strengths in comparative/evolutionary neurobiology and psychology. Members of the group study a range of animals, including bees and other arthropods, echinoderms and several vertebrate species.

We are investigating the evolution and development of nervous systems and neural signaling systems (Butts, Elphick, Stollewerk), combining analysis of genome/transcriptome sequence data with experimental research to discover the evolutionary history and functions of genes/proteins that control nervous system development and function.

Using zebra finches, zebra fish and bees as model systems, we are discovering the mechanisms by which regulation of genomic activity in the nervous system gives rise to short- and long-term changes in whole-animal behaviour (Brennan, Clayton, Hurd).

Our research investigates the evolutionary, ecological and cultural relevance of behaviour, with laboratory- and field-based studies exploring, for example, intraspecific communication and learning (Chittka, Emery, Lachlan, McElligott).

Funding

Research in the group is supported by grants from BBSRC, EPSRC, ERC, NERC, the German Research Foundation and the Swiss National Science Foundation.
