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 […]

Synaptic transmission and its plasticity are occurring in an environment that contains neurons but also glial cells and Synaptic transmission and its plasticity are occurring in an environment that contains neurons but also glial cells and extracellular matrix. How this interaction of neurons and astroglia, an abundant subtype of glial cells, determines hippocampal network function […]
