Students will contribute to studies attempting to better understand vocal production and auditory perception in different types of mice.
Students will help to run operant conditioning experiments on mice to measure complex sound perception. They may also be involved in recording vocalizations from mice and analyzing those vocalizations using software programs.
The specific outcomes of this project will be identified by the faculty mentor at the beginning of your collaboration.
