Research Interests:

How does life experience shape the brain and behavior? Research in the Clayton lab addresses this through studies of the zebra finch and other songbirds. A major focus is on the role of the genome as an agent of integration in the nervous system.  More information on our current research including opportunities for students and postdocs can be found on Prof Clayton's website.
