Southampton College professor Paul Forestell will present "Syntax, Sex and Toxins: Three Views of a Dolphin's World" on Wednesday, May 7 at 1:15 p.m. in the College's Duke Lecture Hall. The talk is part of BrainWASH, a lecture series presented by the Natural Science Division faculty of Southampton College.

Forestell, an Associate Professor of Psychology, is a leading expert in whale and dolphin behavior, with major interests in animal cognition and social behavior. He is Vice President of Pacific Whale Foundation, a Maui-based whale research and education organization, and a research associate with the Talamanca Dolphin Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the wild dolphins and people of the Talamanca region, along Costa Rica's southeast Atlantic coast. During the winter intersession, Forestell leads a group of Southampton College students to Costa Rica to study the behavior of wild dolphins.

The talk is free and open to the public. For further information on other talks in the BrainWASH lecture series, please call the Natural Science Division at (631) 287-8402.
