Welcome to the Rand Lab at Carleton College. We study topics in reproductive neuroendocrinology, using a parthenogenetic species of whiptail lizard (Cnemidophorous velox) as a model system to study the effects of hormones on behavior. Follow the links below to learn more about our lab.

Research in this lab is centered around our investigation of the effects of steroid hormones on sexually dimorphic behavior.

In the lab, you'll find two different types of life...

Cnemidophorus velox, Cnemidophorus tigris, Sceloporus undulatus erythrocheilus, and Russian tortoises.
