Heidi Vollrath is researching the relationship between relative brain size and relative muscle mass in both primates and non-primate mammals. In order to gain a better understanding of why animals with significantly larger brains do not have higher metabolic rates. She is working under the the guidance of Dr. Magdalena Muchlinski of the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology.
