Welcome to the Franssen Lab!

We study the effects of the environment on evolution and development of the mammalian brain.  Currently, we’re investigating how maternal rats make decisions about how to care for their pups and pups from other mothers.  Please click on the navigation bar along the top or on the images below for more information.
