Schmidt, Marc



Dr. Schmidt studies the neural basis of vocal communication in songbirds using an approach that combines electrophysiology, reversible inactivation of select brain regions and quantitative behavioral analysis. Some of his work, in collaboration with David White, also examines the neural basis of sociality.  He is a faculty member of the Department of Biology and co-director of the BBB program. He teaches BBB251 (Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology) and BBB476 (Neural Systems & Behavior).
