 Prairie voles are a highly social, monogamous wild rodent that are used as a model organism for pair bonding behavior. We are investigating the role of sleep on the developing brain. Fragmenting sleep in infant prairie voles prevented them from forming normal social bonds with other voles. We hope to investigate the underlying mechanisms of how sleep disruption during a sensitive developmental period affects behavioral circuits important for social functioning,​ and may contribute to developmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD). ​ Prairie voles are a highly social, monogamous wild rodent that are used as a model organism for pair bonding behavior.
