About Lynne U. Sneddon, Ph.D.

Understanding mechanisms of behaviour using an integrated approach. My research specifically addresses questions in aggression, dominance-subordinate relationships, nociception, and the way these are influenced by environmental stress and adaptation. My studies are aimed at enhancing our understanding of the genes involved in the mechanisms of aggressive behaviour using microarray approaches. I am also involved in behavioural and electrophysiological studies of nociception in fish as well as using microarray to examine global gene expression in the brain of fish. Although fundamentally important, these topics are relevant to welfare problems in aquaculture.
