Hormones, evolution and behaviour: local control of testosterone action in the brain
We proudly present the speaker of our LOCOTACT Lecture in August 2022:
Prof. Dr Matthew Fuxjager (Associate Professor in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Organisational Biology (EEOB) at Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, USA.)
Professor Fuxjager conducts research on the physiological and evolutionary basis of animal behaviour. He combines laboratory and field experiments with a wide range of scientific techniques and approaches to investigate the interplay between hormones and behaviour in the context of evolution. Among other things, his team focuses on the local effects of testosterone in the brain. Another focus of the Fuxjager lab is research on the evolution of the hormonal system and its relationship to the motor functioning for sexual behaviour.
All interested are welcome to attend our LOCOTACT Lectures!
The online lecture takes place via Zoom.
