We are interested in the Development and function of sensory systems.
Functionality of sensory neurons is defined by the sensory receptor gene expressed.
In the larva the sense organs are comparably simple: the eye consists of 12 photoreceptors (4 blue-sensitive, 8 green-sensitive), the gustatory organ (primarily terminal organ) consists of about 32 gustatory neurons.
The research of my laboratory is centered around the development and function of sensory system and neural circuts
