My work attempts to understand the neuronal mechanisms of learning and memory, particularly in invertebrate systems. In addition, I conduct comparative analyses of behavior in a wide range of invertebrate species. I also perform investigations into the behavioral pharmacology of pollutants and have an interest in apparatus design and in using invertebrates for promoting science education within the United States and abroad.
