Bio/Research

In the Comparative Neurobiology Lab at the University of Guelph, Prof. Frederic Laberge and his team are interested in comparative cognition, evolution, and plasticity of the brain. Their work relies mostly on amphibians and fishes as models. The research involves studies of brain anatomy and function, experimental investigations of animal behaviour in the laboratory, and eco-physiological field studies. Focal points of the research are what determines variation in brain size, learning and motivation, and the development of new physiology indicators of the status of wildlife. The methods used range widely from tract tracing of neuronal pathways to touch screen conditioning. The lab collaborates extensively with colleagues at Guelph and elsewhere. The ultimate goal of this research is to understand vertebrate brain structure and function relationships.
