Biography

Research in Dr. Deviche's laboratory focuses on the neuroendocrine mechanisms that control reproductive physiology and behavior in seasonally breeding birds. Most bird species that live at middle and high latitudes reproduce seasonally. Seasonal reproductive system development and regression concur with profound behavioral changes. For example, in many species song is a seasonal and sexually dimorphic behavior, is gonadal hormone-dependent, and is controlled by specific interconnected brain regions. In adults, neural plasticity throughout adult life results in continuous incorporation of new cells into some of these regions and in cell elimination. As a result, the size of some brain regions changes seasonally concurrent with vocal behavior production. His group uses a multi-disciplinary approach to elucidate the relationships between gonadal hormones, vocal behavior, and its neuroanatomical substrate, and is interested in deciphering the underlying cellular mechanisms involved. Dr. Deviche's research also addresses the role of other neurochemicals, in particular opioid peptides and their receptors, that are present in brain regions responsible for vocal behavior control. In addition to his research, Dr. Deviche is active in outreach, as a field guide for birdwatching (Maricopa Audubon Society; Desert Rivers Audubon Society, Boyce Thompson Arboretum State Park) and for dragonfly walks (Boyce Thompson Arboretum State Park).
