Research Interests

I am interested in learning about the neural circuitry controlling social behaviors. Specifically, I want to learn about the roles of vasopressin and oxytocin in behavior, focusing on sex-related differences in behavior.

Tessa is supported by an Undergraduate Research Fellowship of Boston College to work in the lab over the summer of 2014.
