Cognitive Neuroethology

Dr Andrew Barron

Dr Andrew Barron

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Macquarie University. With my team at Macquarie we are exploring the neurobiology of major behavioural systems such as memory, goal-directed behaviour and stress from a comparative and evolutionary perspective.  In 2015 I was awarded an ARC Future Fellowship to develop a computational model of the honey bee brain.

My PhD (Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge 1999) considered the possibility of the retention of memory through metamorphosis in Drosophila. Prior to my move to Macquarie in 2007 I had the opportunity to work with and be mentored by Prof. Ben Oldroyd (University of Sydney), Prof. Gene Robinson (University of Illinois), Prof. Mandayam Srinivasan and Prof. Ryszard Maleszka (Australian National University).
