Dr Kirsty Laughlin (post doctoral) »

Following three years studying zoology at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, I moved south to University of Bristol in the south-west of England where I completed my Ph.D. in applied animal behavior, within the university’s Center for Behavioral Biology. In 2001, I headed across the Atlantic to MSU, where I now carry out research (Laughlin & Zanella, 2002) and teach Animal Behavior to undergraduate students (Laughlin & Zanella; Laughlin et al.). My primary study species is the domestic pig and key research interests are cognitive processes, especially memory and learning, and how these are affected by stress.
