The purpose of present study is to analyze the brain proteome of the nucleus ovoidalis (OV) and Field L regions of the zebra finch (Taeniopygia guttata). The OV and Field L are important brain nuclei in song learning in zebra finches; their analyses identified a total of 79 proteins. The zebra finch brain proteome analyses are poised to provide clues about cell and circuit layout as well as possible circuit function.
