SYNOPSIS

The Behavioral Systems thematic area focuses on the development, function, mechanisms, and evolution of behavior, biological rhythms, and interactions between organisms including animals, plants, and microbes. This area supports research on social and reproductive behavior; behavioral ecology and physiology; neural and hormonal mechanisms of behavior; immunology of behavior; animal cognition and communication. Behavioral Systems encompasses physiological responses, chemical communication, and reproductive consequences of plant interactions with other organisms. Proposals that use functional genomics to understand physiological and behavioral adaptations to environmental stimuli and stress are encouraged.

Program Directors:

Diane Witt. Behavioral Neuroscience and Neuroendocrinology, neural mechanisms underlying behavior and neuroendocrine regulation of brain-behavior relationships, including reproductive/social behavior, learning and memory, and biological rhythms in animals

Michael Beecher. Ontogeny, phylogeny, causation, and function of behavior

John Byers. Ontogeny, phylogeny, causation, and function of behavior

Michael Mishkind. Plant-Biotic Interactions, molecular and physiological responses to pathogens and non-pathogenic organisms
