Research activity

Research

We are interested in the differentiation and plasticity of neuronal dendrites.
We study the mechanisms of dendrite differentiation of larval peripheral nervous system neuron, concentrating on the cytoskeletal changes underlying branching.
In addition, we have described in some detail an adult circuit potentially involved in the formation of olfactory associative memories. We are currently building the set up to investigate structural correlates of sensory changes and memory formation on this circuit.
