Dr. Kabelik′s research examines the neural circuits that regulate social and conversely aggressive behaviors, and how steroid hormones modulate these circuits and behaviors. He conducts this work in Brown and Green Anole (Anolis) model systems. Dr. Kabelik is excited about integrating students into this research, and about his Physiology and Neuroscience courses.
