Our research focuses on two areas: Vertebrate Embryogenesis and Behavior. We use zebrafish as a model system because genetic and imaging approaches can be combined to study complex behaviors and developmental processes in a vertebrate. More details can be found on our Research page.
1. Vertebrate Embryogenesis
How do signals, non-coding RNAs, and chromatin influence the fate and movement of cells?
How do neuropeptides and neural circuits regulate locomotion, sleep, and learning?
