Doctoral student in Integrative Neuroscience
Rebecca Butler is graduate student in the Integrative Neuroscience program working with Sarah London. She received degrees in Biochemistry and Marine Science from the University of Texas with a business certificate. While at UT, she worked with Dr. Hans Hofmann to investigate the neuromolecular mechanisms by which early-life social experiences affect adult social behavior in a species of cichlid fish, Astatotilapia burtoni.
In general, Rebecca is interested in the mechanistic connections between biochemical pathways and social behavior.
