Forskningsintressen

The general goal of my PhD project under Niclas Kolm supervision is to increase our knowledge of the costs and benefits acting on brain evolution in vertebrates. In particular, using the guppy (Poecilia reticulata) as a model system, I investigate physiological and behavioral responses correlated to rapid evolution of a more advanced brain.
