Research Objectives

I have been working in the lab as an undergraduate assistant since August 2012.  I am a junior zoology major and I am most interested in the developmental and behavioral side of the lab’s research.  Currently, my project involves using optogenetics to regulate embryonic chick motility as a means to develop a better understanding of the development of sensorimotor integration.
