Research Interests:
Michael is a biopsychologist with research interests in biological rhythms and behavioral neuroendocrinology. His recent work addresses the roles of the light environment and the hormone melatonin in controlling annual variations in reproduction and behavior in rodents. Related research focuses on the functional organization of the circadian clock mechanisms that time virtually all behavioral and physiological functions (examples include daily activity/rest cycles and patterns of hormone secretion).
