Benjamin Smarr

Dr. Benjamin Smarr is a recent graduate of the Neurobiology and Behavior program at the University or Washington. He is interested in neurophysiological and neuroendocrine underpinnings of behavioral choice, and uses circadian rhythms and female reproductive rhythms as cyclic - and therefore predictable - models of "decision making" neural integrators with overt and measurable behavioral outputs. He is also dedicated to community outreach and education, to spread awareness of science and scientific ways of thought to the public, with the goal of raising their understanding and their interest in these endeavors.
