Our Goal


Our lab has a long-standing interest to unravel the neurobiology of animal behaviour. We study how neural circuits are connected to regulate behaviours and how molecules within a neural circuit facilitate its function.

To accomplish our mission to understand how molecular networks function to ensure the proper development of neural circuits that govern behaviours, our lab tackles this question from two different directions: 1) studying how the neural circuit for reproductive behaviour functions in the model organism Drosophila melanogaster and 2) studying how molecules implicated in human behavioural disorders function.
