The Broadie Lab works on nervous system development, including neuronal pathfinding, target recognition, and synaptogenesis. Lab members take a genetic approach in Drosophila, using mutagenesis screens to identify developmental mutants and a combination of light imaging, electron microscope ultrastructural studies, and electrophysiology to characterize mutant phenotypes.
What are the genetic and molecular mechanisms underlying coordinated movement, integrated behavior, cognition, learning and memory? How does the nervous system circuitry underlying these behaviors develop? How is information relayed rapidly and accurat
