Dr. Damaris-Lois Y Lang, Assistant Professor of Biology, presented on the “Impact of Odors on Paternal Responsiveness and Associated Neuronal Activity in ‘Expectant’ Male Prairie Voles (Microtus ochrogaster)” at the International Journal of Arts and Science Conference held at Harvard University.

Dr. Lang’s research emphasized on how sensory cues, like odors from infants, are able to induce parental responsiveness in prairie voles. This work threw some light on how the male prairie voles exhibit increased exploratory tendencies in the presence of infant sensory cues.
