The Alberts Laboratory
Development of behavior is the guiding theme of the Alberts Lab. We follow a variety of analytic paths and use a wide array of tools, but the questions asked in this lab converge on the development of species-typical behavior in rodents. Our work is often inspired by the traditions and approaches of ethology, animal behavior, behavioral embryology, physiological ecology, behavioral neuroscience, and computational modeling.The various lines of research pursued in the Alberts Lab combine into an integrated, multilevel, biological perspective on behavior development. The breadth of this research program pertains to a wide range of scientific interests.
