Faculty mentor: Moriel Zelikowsky

Social behavior is important for many animal species to survive and reproduce. Social behavior involves complex interactions between animals in a group. Mice are a social species and are often used as a model system for research related to social behavior and associated neural circuits. An important aspect of social behavior in mice is ultrasonic vocalizations (USVs). We hypothesized that prolonged social isolation would lead to maladaptive changes in mouse USVs during courtship behavior.
