I’m interested in understanding the neuronal basis of innate behaviors, i.e., the processes implemented by neuronal circuits to transform sensory information into motor commands. Using a combination of molecular and physiological approaches during animal behavior, we aim to reveal the principles and motifs of neuronal computation. In my lab we split our effort into two different model organisms, the mouse and the fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster), to take advantage of their unique strengths and gather a general understanding (across phyla) of computational principles.
