Unravelling the signalling cues controlling vertebrate reproductive behaviour

This article explores how Dr Maruska uses fish models to understand the mechanisms of how the brain functions and adapts to constantly changing environment and physiological state.

How do vertebrate brains integrate information from external social cues and internal physiological states to produce appropriate behaviours? This is one of the big questions that Dr Karen Maruska and her research team at Louisiana State University (LSU) are striving to answer. Dr Maruska leads a research group that uses fish models to investigate how animals process and translate multisensory […]
