Building neurons and circuits

Dendrites and axons show extraordinarily diverse forms and modes of patterning, with important implications for nervous system wiring and neuronal function. Our lab is interested in how neurons acquire their type-specific morphology and organization and how this organization underlies circuit function. To approach this problem, we use molecular, genetic, anatomical, and behavioral approaches to identify the mechanisms that sculpt somatosensory circuits during development.

Another November, another NYC BT5K

Lab and friends of lab took on a crisp NYC Sunday morning to fundraise for brain tumor research, and stretch the legs!  Good job runners and walkers alike!
