To gain a deeper understanding of how environmental conditions affect brain plasticity, brain size was explored across different seasons using the invasive round goby Neogobius melanostomus. The results show that N. melanostomus had heavier telencephalon in the spring compared to the autumn across the two years of study. Furthermore, fish in reproductive condition had heavier telencephala, indicating that tissue investment and brain plasticity may be related to reproductive needs in N. melanostomus.
