for SA and piano I remember sets a text reflecting on the wonder of the natural world and the people who shape our lives. The stirring melody calls to mind the folksong tradition, and is underpinned by a gently flowing piano accompaniment. The middle section brings a contrast of tonality, with the altos accompanying the sopranos' melodic line, before the beguiling melody of the opening returns to bring the setting to a poignant close.

Biological research relies heavily on animal models that enable direct physiological analyses. Each animal model is suitable to address different scientific questions. The songbird is a leading model for study of brain-behavior relationships, especially as a model for human speech. The strength of the songbird as a model lies in the rich complexity of singing behavior that is quantifiable and the identified neural circuitry which controls this learned behavior. Here, I study a songbird, zebra finch (Taeniopygia guttata ), as a model for vocal learning in order to unveil molecular mechanisms that are potentially shared between songbirds and humans.
