Williams Laboratory

Initially, students shadow more experienced lab members and assist with behavioral neuroscience experiments. As students become more skilled, they take on more responsibility and may run experiments of their own. This can involve activities such as measurement of feeding and/or drinking behavior, use of various behavioral testing equipment, brain or gastrointestinal surgery, brain sectioning and histology, and measurement of hormones, mRNA, or protein in blood or tissue samples.
