My lab is interested in the cellular dynamics that support the development and plasticity of the nervous system. We study how neurons establish their complex distinctive dendrite morphologies. For this, in combination with classical genetics, we are pushing in vivo imaging of differentiating neurons to reveal the subcellular transient localization of active molecular cascades. We […]

Our lab is interested in elucidating the functional neuronal circuits that control fundamental animal behaviors such as feeding and movement. Our current goal is to provide a complete connectivity map of the feeding circuit in Drosophila larvae at both single cell and synaptic resolution. This includes all muscles, motor neurons, sensory organs, interneurons and modulatory […]
