    We are not the same (& that is fine): Different Approaches to Animal Behavior

    By DNLee | April 20, 2015 |

    I’m in full throttle Research mode and as I am oft to do – I think very deeply about the meaning and purpose of my tests. My ever-evolving research philosophy is definitely a very whole organism approach. The whole animal is my subject. In my care, the whole animal is my responsibility, not just the data it yields me.

    #DNLeeLab: Rethinking my feeding enrichment biases

    By DNLee | April 16, 2015 |

    I’m rethinking my feeding enrichment protocols. My pouched rats, Cricetomys gambianus and C. ansorgei, are food generalists but in the lab we feed them commercially available rodent or rabbit chow. In the past I’ve included dog food as a part of their regular diet to get protein in the diet. […]

    April Fools Troll So Hard

    By DNLee | April 1, 2015 |

    I don't get very many comments. Much of that has to do with what I blog about - most introductory topics. I focus on curiosity. Yet, I've noticed that whenever I affirm a more activist tone in my posts and discuss topics related to diversity or inclusion or access to higher education or the sciences to individuals from under-represented groups, I get all kinds of action.
