Faculty mentor: Donald Feener

In this project, I tested 34 American cockroaches (Periplaneta americana) for traits which are known to be consistent within individuals and vary between them (termed ‘personality’ traits by prior researchers) and examined how they were related and how they relate to the cockroach’s ability to learn, as well as whether research conducted on other cockroaches’ personalities could be extended to P. americana.
