The Frye Lab is a behavioral neuroendocrinology research lab at the University at Albany. Behavioral neuroendocrinology is a fascinating field of science devoted to the study of hormones in the brain and their effects on behavior. In our lab, we focus on sex hormones, such as progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone, and their effects on many different social, learning, depressive and anxiety behaviors via actions in the brain. For more information about our research, check out our About the Lab page.
Our lab has a reputation for putting education of new researchers high on our list of priorities. In addition to providing invaluable research opportunities to students at the UAlbany campus, Dr. Frye is one of the founders of N.E.U.R.O.N, a conference held twice each year and designed to give students an opportunity to present their research and learn from highly regarded keynote speakers in neuroscience, faculty from neighboring universities, and peers studying differences aspects of neuroscience.
