node:field_content_summary | entity_field


Drosophila is emerging as one of the primary model systems for the genetic investigation of neural circuits and behavior. A follow up to the 2015 and 2017 meetings, this workshop will focus on recent technical and conceptual developments in the field, including genetic methods for identifying and manipulating specific cell types, optogenetics, electrophysiology, EM reconstructions, and automated analysis of behavior. All selected applicants will give a talk, and there will be ample opportunities for both formal and informal participant interactions.
