Matthew Barrett

Research Interests: In the last few months, I have found a real interest in host-behavior manipulation. Looking at the neuro-mechanisms behind behavioral changes sounds incredible. Also after spending time at the Cocha Cashu research station in Manu National Park, Peru, I have found interest in ecology such as how members of the same species interact and acquire resources.
