Timothy Devoogd is the Director of the Latin American Studies Program (LASP) and a Professor in the Department of Psychology.  His research aims to study how the brains of birds encode learned behaviors like song or memory for food locations.  Particular questions now being studied by his research group include the neural basis for female song discrimination, and the interplay between the hippocampus and other brain areas in spatial memory.  He studies these questions in a variety of species in order to infer how these abilities evolved.
