Welcome to Kathleen Killian's Behavioral Neurobiology Laboratory in the Department of Zoology at Miami University.

We are interested in neural mechanisms of behavioral plasticity. In particular, we investigate how an animal's experiences or motivational state can influence its behavioral responses.

We use a variety of experimental approaches including behavioral assays, electrophysiology, HPLC, immunocytochemistry, confocal microscopy, and molecular biology techniques.
