I study how the brains of birds encode learned behaviors like song or memory for food locations. Particular questions now being studied include the neural basis for female song discrimination, and the interplay between the hippocampus and other brain areas in spatial memory. I study these questions in a variety of species in order to infer how these abilities evolved.
