Meliza Lab

The Meliza lab studies the songbird auditory system in two songbird species: the zebra finch and European starling. We utilize both electrophysiology and behavioral methods to learn more about how songbirds are able to discriminate and recognize songs from different individuals. My work focuses on studying the physiological properties of neurons within certain auditory regions of the zebra finch brain using whole-cell recording.
