Career Specialties: Scott Husband’s primary field of study is behavioral neuroscience with an emphasis on comparative neuroanatomy and cognition. He has studied higher-level visual processing, the role of dopamine in attention, and dopamine-hormone interactions in various species of birds.

His research goals are to contribute to the understanding of how neural circuits and neurochemistry contribute to complex perception and cognition, and to investigate brain evolution by studying the brain and the behavior of non-mammalian species.

Professional and Community Activities: Husband has published research in several scientific journals, including Brain Research, the Journal of Comparative Neurology, and Nature Reviews Neuroscience. He has presented his work at several international scientific conferences, including the Society for Neuroscience and the International Conference on Comparative Cognition.
