Early exposure to antibiotics reduces affiliative behavior after weaning in zebra finches (Taeniopygia guttata).

Dr. Rouse holds a doctorate in psychological and brain sciences from Johns Hopkins University with expertise in behavioral neuroendocrinology and neuroethology. His research looks at how hormones, the environment, and the brain interact to influence social behavior, particularly reproductive behaviors. His lab uses songbirds as their model system. This model system allows for the study of how hormones act in the brain to modulate the learning and activation of behavior, as well as how hormones affect the perception of behavior. These studies demonstrate the influence of the endocrine system on brain plasticity, learning, and social behavior.
