The Bird Brains Lab, headed up by Doug Wylie and Andrew Iwaniuk, is aimed at understanding various perceptual and cognitive processes using a variety of neuroscience techniques applied to the avian brain. Although quite closely inter-related, the emphasis of Wylie's research is on sensory-motor processing, in particular brainstem-cerebellar visual systems, whereas the emphasis of Iwaniuk's research is on the evolution of the brain and the effects of persistent organic pollutants on the brain and behaviour of vertebrates.
