​Neural Development in Drosophila

The development of a neural circuit requires precise synaptic interconnectivity and acquisition of appropriate electrical properties by constituent neurons. My research investigates the mechanisms that regulate the electrical development of neurons.

This research uses the larvae of the fruitfly, Drosophila melanogaster, because this allows us to combine molecular genetics with electrophysiology.
