Neural circuit development and function

A major goal of modern neuroscience is the understanding of neuronal circuit development and function in an intact behaving animal. Our group examines the formation and function of the visual system of zebrafish larvae using in-vivo time-lapse microscopy and 'optogenetic' approaches to monitor and perturb neuronal activity. We apply cellular and molecular analysis to dissect this circuit and identify the neuronal substrate of visual behaviors.
