We combine field and laboratory approaches to examine natural behaviour in natural settings and to examine links between behaviour, cognition, and the brain. Brain measures include fine-scale differences, such as neurogenesis. An important study system is avian brood parasitism, in which some parasitic species show female-biased sex differences in spatial behaviour in the field with associated sex differences in spatial memory and in the hippocampus (part of the brain responsible for spatial memory).
