The zebra finch (Taeniopygia guttata) is a small songbird that inhabits arid regions of Australia and is easily bred in captivity. The zebra finch serves as an ideal model organism for studies of neural structure and function, the effect of steroid hormones on the development of neural networks, and the impact of the products of sex-chromosome-specific genes on brain development.
