We use the Drosophila model organisms to study the genetic and neural mechanisms underlying social interactions. The primary goal of my laboratory is to understand the genetic and neural mechanisms that... more
Our lab seeks to understand how neuromodulators functionally reconfigure neural circuits to shape goal-oriented behavior and pain perception. Our multidisciplinary approach relies on electrophysiological, optical and... more
The goal of our lab is to understand how neuronal computations change in response to an animal’s interactions with the environment.
The Halpain lab uses multi-scale approaches to investigate neurodevelopmental disorders like autism and neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s. Subcellular imaging is used to track the behavior and function of... more
Animals constantly modify their behavior through experience. Flexible behavior is key to our ability to adapt to the ever-changing environment. Our laboratory is interested in studying the activity of neuronal... more
The goal of my laboratory is to discover the principles linking brain mechanisms and behavior.
Our lab investigates the role of electrical activity in gene expression in the developing and adult nervous system.
How is olfactory information represented and processed in the fly central nervous system? This question is the main driving force for research in the Wang lab.
