The fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster provides unique experimental advantages for studying complex phenomenon for which there is little preexisting mechanistic information. Our laboratory seeks to develop and apply the genetic and anatomical tools required to realize that potential—previously applied to many other problems in genetics, cell biology and developmental biology—to gain an understanding of the organization and function of a sophisticated nervous system.
Much of our work is pursued in collaborations with other laboratories, at Janelia and throughout the world, that have complementary expertise in specific behaviors, electrophysiology, functional imaging and theory.
