Georg F. Striedter
Full Professor of the School of Biological Sciences and Fellow in the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory, University of California, Irvine (USA). He authored many evo-devo research papers and the books Principles of brain evolution and Neurobiology: A functional approach. He has received various prizes such as the C. J. Herrick Award in 1998, for his contribution to comparative neuroanatomy. Editor-inchief of Brain, Behavior and Evolution. His research focuses on the evolution of vertebrate brains and behavior.

Evo-devo biology involves cross-species comparisons of entire developmental trajectories, not just of adult forms. This approach has proven very successful in general morphology, but its application to neurobiological problems is still relatively new.
