BA/MA student Justin Spring speaks about his research titled “Genetic Relatedness and Adult Neuron Addition in an Avian Forebrain Pathway.” Spring explores the factors that regulate the natural process of neurogenesis in adult birds. He has found that somewhat surprisingly, birds who were nest mates have similar rates of neuron addition once they become adults. Spring’s advisor is John Kirn, chair and professor of neuroscience and behavior, professor of biology. (Photos by Olivia Drake)
